Jan-23-10  crwynn: Okay so Black played 15...Be6 and then the game makes sense; for the rest of the game there is really a pawn on e7 and no bishop on d7. Black resigns because with f3 defended, White is now ready to take the trapped knight on h3.

  FSR: I'm don't understand <Xeroxx>'s sarcasm. <crwynn>'s surmise is logical, and almost surely is what actually happened. 15...e6 (as in the text) would be anti-positional, weakening the d-pawn, and 16.Bxe6?? (as in the text) would be a nonsensical reply, losing a bishop for a pawn for no reason. On the other hand, 15...Be6, allowing White to double Black's e-pawns, is a common idea in the Dragon, and 16.Bxe6 is a natural response. And yes, with those moves made, it makes sense that Black would resign at the end, since his knight is lost.
