Jun-30-05  Knight13: 12... a6?? is a blunder. Fiedler didn't realize that lots of pieces are hitting the f7 square and.... BOOM! He blew it. Better is 12... Be6.

Nice.... Terrible....

  Honza Cervenka: <Knight13> 12...a6 was a blunder but better would have been 12...Nxd5. After 12...Be6 13.Qh5 white's attack is sufficient for draw at least.

For example, 13...Bxd5 14.e6!? (white has immediate draw after 14.Qxf7+ Bxf7 15.Bxf7+ Kd7 16.Be6+ Ke8 17.Bf7+ etc.) 14...Ng6 (14...Bxe6? 15.Nxe6 g6 16.Qf3 Qd6 17.Qxf7+ Kd7 18.Nc5+ Kc8 19.Be6+ Kb8 20.Nd7+ Kc8 21.Nxf8+ and white wins.) 15.exf7+ Ke7 16.Nxh7 Qd6 17.Bxd5 with strong initiative of white. Also 13...Ng6 14.Nxf7 Bxf7 15.Rxf7! Nce7 (15...Kxf7 16.Nxc7+ ) 16.Bg5! looks more that promising for white. Maybe 13...Ng6 14.Nxf7 Bxd5!? 15.Nxd8 Bxc4 16.Nxc6 Bxf1 17.Kxf1 bxc6 18.Qf3 Kd7 is survivable for black but it's still fight for bare life. 13...Kd7 loses after 14.Nxe6 fxe6 15.Nf4 Qe8 16.Bxe6+ Kd8 17.Bf7 Qd7 18.d5

Sep-04-09  YoungEd: <Knight13> is right that Black should have tried 12. ...♗e6, but I'm glad he didn't--this is a great finish!
