  patzer2: Lahno's 22...Nc4! is a crushing positional Knight Fork, which sets up a winning double attack after <23. Bxc4 Qxc4 24. Re1> 24...Nf4+ (slightly improving IMO over the game continuation) 25. Bxf4 Rxe1 26. Qxe1 Qxf4 leaving the White b-pawn and g-pawn helplessly enprise.

  patzer2: I think you mean does 28. Rae7 help?

If so, per Fritz 8's analysis, the short answer is that it helps some but not enough to save White's game.

Fritz 8 gives 28. Rae2 f6! 29. h4 fxg5 30. hxg5 Bc3 31. Rh1 b4 32. axb4 axb4 33. Rh4 Rxe3! (setting up a double attack) 34. Rxe3 Bd2 35. Rd3 Bxd3 36. Ncxd3 Rxg5+ (-2.06 @ 14 depth). Black's two extra pawns should win easily.

Jan-11-06  olaf4lena: Thanks, patzer, for the analysis. It appears that Rd1 only made things worse, but the game was lost at 22... Nc4.
