  Penguincw: The position looks bad for white, but I think white can continue on. Not sure what to recommend, but I do recommend playing on.
Jan-23-15  310metaltrader: If the white queen protects the horsie then Rc8 from black wins the horsie or if white interferes with the bishop, which would then be pinned to the horsie, black could move his b pawn and you lose the bishop, right?

  Penguincw: Sorry, but happens after 19.Qh2? I guess there's 19...Qa5, but 20.b4, and where does the queen go? Just looking at the official site, Stockfish at 22 depth (whatever that means) says that it will take after 10 moves for black to be up a second pawn (that is after one is won after taking out the knight).
Jan-23-15  310metaltrader: That qh2 line leads to a complete fss aucking in the center when that e pawn is taken so white has to defend on e1 with the rook and then there is fork by the horsie. go to chessbomb and you can see why i suck at chess and why GMs know when to resign.

  Mating Net: Although not as bad as this famous gem, Larsen vs Spassky, 1970 games such as this one are the reasons why I was never enticed to play the Nimzo Larsen.
