Apr-30-08  PolishPentium: Suggestion: 21...Nc4. If White captures the N, then Black ends up the exchange. If not, then Black can take the N at c3 and then snare the a2 pawn. With the advanced obstreperous N, havoc may ensue...

  whiteshark: <PolishPentium: <Suggestion: 21...Nc4. If White captures the N, then Black ends up the exchange.>> Suggestive, but wrong. Black will lose a piece as ♗x♘c3 creates ♕h8# threat. Otherwise white will recapture on square b1 with ♖+♘. :D

  Gilmoy: Possibly 19..Rab6 was the too-timid move. Benko seems to commit Black to a more energetic Q-side push before White's 21.b3 (enabling Na4) solidifies everything.

19..Bxc3 20.bxc3 Rxa2 <I think Black prefers to let White trade the Rs, to leave her Rh1 further from the action> 21.Rxb8+ Nxb8 22.Qg5 <threatening 23.Qc8+> Qb7 23.Rb1!? <Qxb1?? 24.Bh6+ and Q#> Qc7. Black got her pawn back, but White has strong play.
