  tpstar: 17. 0-0 is as funny as it is logical; White owns the right lower quadrant of the board so might as well castle there.

The position after 14. h4 speaks for itself. White has all kinds of space and development while Black is cramped with no counterplay.

24 ... Nb7 25. Qg4+ Kd8 (25 ... f5? 26. gxf6+) 26. Nxb5! is crushing.

  Gilmoy: <24 ... Nb7 25.Qg4+ Kd8 26.Nxb5!> I went with 26.Bb6+ with swift mate.

Maybe you'll say that happens regardless ...

  tpstar: <26. Bb6+> Yes, much better. Thank you.
