  An Englishman: Good Evening: Wild and wooly play, here. Black's pawn sacrifice doesn't seem to offer much, but no matter what line I examine, White has a spot of trouble extricating himself from the nebulous yet persistent initiative. Perhaps 23.0-0!? was worth a try, but the combination of ...Qb6 and ...Rbc8 might still prove annoying.

  vonKrolock: It occurred to me, while watching the game here, that,instead of the prosaic <20.♕xc4>, white could play the amazing 20.♕g1 !!? with the powerfull threat of ♕h2, or even (in the evente of black ♖f8 plays - the astonishing ♖h8 check followed by ♕h2... the combination looks so strong, that I'm seeing now just the defense (after ♕g1) of 20...♘e6. ♗ut then white can play 21.♗xe6, followed by 22.♖h8+!! and 23.♕h2 etc
