Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-22-08  openingspecialist: This has 2 be a tuesday puzzle. Nxg6! 20. White to move
Jul-01-11  Elrathia Kingi: 17...c6 is losing. It loses a tempo and allows white's attack to mature immediately. Even though there is a pawn advantage, it is hard to find a good continuation for black to simplify the game to a winnable endgame, because the B is trapped on c8 with no good way out.
Oct-26-12  MuzioFan: What happens after 20. ...Bd7? I don't see an easy win here, perhaps 21. Rf8+ Rxf8 22. Ne7+ Kh8 23. Nxd5 cxd5, after which black would have a rook and a bishop for the queen.

  watwinc: <MuzioFan> 23 ... cxd5 24 Rxf8ch Rxf8 ch 25 Qe7
Oct-26-12  MuzioFan: The e6 pawn is in the way, 25. Qe7 is not possible.
Oct-26-12  shivasuri4: <MuzioFan>, 20...Bd7 would perhaps be replied with the simple 21.Qxd5, after which 21...exd5 22.Rxd7 hxg6 23.Rff7 leads to a very strong position for white. The g7 pawn will be lost soon and the pawns on g6 and b7 will also be threatened. Considering that the game was via correspondence, black probably didn't want to prolong the agony.
