Jul-29-10  goslar: The game seems to explode into life with two remarkable moves 16. Nf5 and 17. Bc6+. Can anyone explain how 16. ... exf5 is refuted?
Aug-12-10  TommyC: Not a refutation, but 17.Qxc8+ leads to a better endgame for white.

  Gilmoy: <TommyC: 17.Qxc8+> Rxc8 18.Rxc8+ Kd7! just drops a piece. I think the point is the same as the game line, 16..exf5 17.Bc6+ <17.Bxb7? Bxb7 and Black will simply return a piece on e4> Kf8 <Bd7 18.Rfe1 Ne4 19.Bxb7 Rb8 20.Bxa6 and 21.f3 will regain the piece> 18.Rfe1 <Black has WBR>, e.g.

18..Qd6 <to prevent Qc4+> 19.Rcd1 Qc7[] 20.Qc4+ Kg8 21.Re7

18..Qc7 19.Qc4+ Kg8 20.Re7 Qxc6 21.Qe3 h6! <the Q can't cover e8 forever: 21..Qa4 22.Rc4! 22.Qb5 a4> Black simply sells his Q for more than face value, leaving White with a tedious Q v RBNP endgame. If Black can build a fortress and free his KR, he comes out ahead, but it takes some nerve to play into that at -233 rating.

Probably Black just didn't like all those complications.

Not so. After 19.Bxf5+ and 20.Rxh8 white is a marginal amount of material ahead and again is slightly better.

After 16.Nf5 exf5! 17.Bc6+?? Kf8 18.Rfe1 Be6 white can resign.

I think you're probably that black thought 16...Qb4 was a way out of the complications. Or maybe he thought he had a better bet in complications than an inferior endgame.
