Mar-24-07  Whitehat1963: Neither Sebastian nor I can find our way through the Slavic maze after 16...Nf6. What's best play, and what's the finish? Help!
Dec-21-12  Everett: After 24..Bxf4 25.Re1+ Kf8 26.Rxd8#
Jun-06-18  paavoh: <...Slavic maze after 16...Nf6. What's best play...>

I feel Black made an error much earlier, misplaying the Knights' positions around moves 7-10.

After 16.- Nf6, 17.Qb3 seems very good too because the King is vulnerable from checks on the a4-e8 diagonal.

  offramp: If you play ...Nd7 often enough it's bound to be right sometimes.

  Check It Out: <offramp> you are definitely in the running for the Caisser funniest kibitzer award.
Jun-06-18  goodevans: Restless knights...

Black made seven knight moves in a row. Is that some kind of record for the opening?

Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: It seems that Black's error started with 8. ... Nfd7 which is a good plan but too early.

Instead 8...a5 9. f3 Nfd7 10. Nxd7 Nxd7 11. e4 Bg6 12. Be3 e6 and it seems o.k.

5. a4 looks like a good plan.

  Once: 24. Bf4 is a fun finish, but white also wins with 24. Bxb6.
