Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-18-07  Whitehat1963: Interesting finish after 18...Qc5, might make for a decent puzzle. (No lie!) But what's best play at that point?
Premium Chessgames Member
Black might have had its reasons not to play <9... Nb4>.

<10. Ne5 Qd6 11. Bf4 Nxc2+ is <tactical tango>>.

(Perhaps I will understand this in 100 years, said Bad Boy).

  whiteshark: errare humanum est:
The line stated y'day <9... Nb4 10. Ne5 Qd6 11. Bf4 Nxc2+> should be extended with 12. Ke2 Qc5 13. Bb5+ Kd8 14. Nxg6 Nd4+ 15. Kf1 Nxb5 16. Nxh8 Nxc3 17. bxc3 Qc4+ 18. Kg2 Qxf4 19. Rf1 and now white is better here.
Oct-09-07  Whitehat1963: I like the finish: If 21...Bxb3, then 22. Nd7+ forking the queen. But if 21...cxb6, then 22. Ne6+ forking the queen again, forcing 22...Bxe6 23. Bd6+ forking the queen yet again. Three different pieces fork the queen! (Sounds like bad chess porn.)

  whiteshark: Truly Odd Lie.
Oct-15-08  emayev: Whitehat, is 23. Bd6+ really such a good idea? It seems like it just gives back the piece as after ..Bxe6 the white queen is under attack too. Just 23. recaptures seems to be crushing though.

but regardless of whether your analysis holds up the chess porn joke was hillarious
