Apr-04-09  A.G. Argent: 27.Rxe6 is a nice play by Mieses. If Black goes with 27...fxe6 then 28.Ng6+ and either 28...Ke8 or Kg8 gives White the Queen fork. Maybe a Tuesday puzzle at 27.?
Aug-21-12  DanielBryant: Could Black have simply taken the pawn with 17...cxb4? True, his d pawn is suddenly a major liability, but Black does get the c file (with the possibility of adding pressure on c2), and White's knight won't be able to develop with the same ease that it does in the game.
Aug-21-12  Cyphelium: <DanielBryant> I guess his idea was to get some activity after 17.- cxb4 18. ♕d4, when the b4 pawn cannot be covered (18.- a5 19. ♖xa5 ♖xa5 20. ♕xb4+ etc). After, say, 18.- ♖hc8 19. ♕xb4+ ♔e8 20. c3, black looks ok though. For instance, he could exchange on b1 and then play ♕e7.

After, say, 18.- Rhc8 19. Qxb4+ Ke8 20. c3, black looks ok though. For instance, he could exchange on b1 and then play Qe7.>

After 18.Qd4 black can trade the Queens by 18...Qa7 with advantage. 18.Qd2 is better way to attack Pb4.

Aug-22-12  Cyphelium: <HonzaCervenka> In fact, also on 17.- cxb4 18. ♕d2, your suggestion 18.- ♕a7+ looks like the best move for black: 19. ♔h1 ♕c5 and I don’t know what white’s point is. So black really seems ok after 17.- cxb4.

  Honza Cervenka: <Cyphelium> This attempt to keep the Pawn after 17...cxb4 18.Qd2 Qa7+ 19.Kh1 Qc5 looks a bit risky after 20.Qg5+ Kd7 21.Nd2 but after 19...Rhc8 20.Qxb4+ Qc5 black is fine.
