  ToTheDeath: Very interesting speculative attack by Dittmann. The a1-a2-g2 Rook lift that occurs in the game and in variations like this one is pretty- 13... Nxc4 14. Nh5 Nxh5 (14... d5 15. Nxf6+ gxf6 16. Qh5 f5 17. Ra2) 15. Bxh7+! Kxh7 16. Qxh5+ Kg8 17. Qxf7+ Kh8 18. Ra2! and now:

A) 18... Nxe3 19. Bxe3 Rxe3 20. Rxg2 Re1+ 21. Kf2 Qe7 22. Qf8+ Qxf8 23. Rxf8+ Kh7 24. Kxe1

B) 18... Nd6 19. Qh5+ Kg8 20. Rxg2 Re4 21. Rxe4 Nxe4 22. Qd5+ Kh8 23. Qxe4.

C) 18...d5 19. Rxg2 mates.

Maybe 15...Qc6 is a better defensive try- after 18.Rxf6!! Black is defenceless.
