Jul-06-10  antharis: Well 20. ♕b5 came actually one single move too late! After 18... hxg3?? 19.♕b5! would have won a whole minor piece for white: 19.♕b5! ♕e8 (the best move to defend d7) 20.♕xf5.

19...♘e5 would simply followed by 20.♕xe5,
19...♕e7 by 20.♗xf5 and
19...gxh2+ will result in 20.♔h1, after which white will win the ♗f5 too.

Jul-10-12  Ghuzultyy: 4.exf5 e4 5.Nd4! might be worth some research.

  whiteshark: General's ignorance lost this battle.
Dec-30-19  Christoforus Polacco: 4.e:f5 Nf6 is enough good for black. 15... Bd6 looks bad because of 16.Nb5
