I'd say you redeemed yourself well, Mr. Schiller. A good lesson in the difference between material advantage and initiative/threat.

  whiteshark: According to <find similar games> this is the only black win in this variation. Schiller is always somewhat special. :D
Dec-14-08  Pobble: 15.Bb3 is more like ? than ?!. After 15.Rd1 Qxc2 16.Bxf7! black can resign.
Dec-14-08  Vishy but not Anand: Mercere 10. Nc3?? was a gross mistake ignoring counter of Schiller Ng4.

10. f3 is a good quiet alternative keeping 1 pawn ahead with positional advantage then afterwards white can continue to develop his pieces to attack black.
