Jun-16-07  notyetagm: Moves 17-22 by White constitute a fine combination which wins a piece.

Jun-17-07  notyetagm: <ounos: How does White win a piece after 19. ... Be7 ?>

This is going to sound very strange but I was just thinking about this exact same tactical question while driving home from the late show of the "Fantastic 4: Silver Surfer" movie.

White looks to have a big edge after 20.Na4 Qc7 21.Nxc5 Bxc5 22.Bxc5 Qxc5 23.Rac1 but no win of a piece.

Yes, the <LOOSE> Black c5-knight <LINED UP> with the White c4-bishop suggests the tactical theme <DISCOVERED ATTACK> but since White cannot put a rook on the c-file <A TEMPO> it is not that big of a threat.

A big edge indeed.
