Nov-03-08  DoubleCheck: 32... Nfd5
33. Bxd5 Nxd5
34. Bxh8 Nxe7
35. Rxe7 Rxh8

Black is a bishop up

Nov-03-08  tommy boy: What about
33.bxh8 Ndxe7
34.Rxh8 Rxe7
isn't it equal?

No, black is still up material
Plus you made an error in your line

After 32...Nfd5 count the material for both white and black and you will see that black has one more material therefore after the exchanges black remains up one material

Nov-03-08  tommy boy: Aha, you're right I see now. My mistake
Nov-26-16  RookFile: 13. Bf4 is logical and good enough for an opening advantage, e.g. 13. Bf4 Bd6 14. Bxd6 Qxd6 15. dxc5 Qxc5 16. Ne4
