Jun-29-05  Mating Net: I would say that 32.Rxc6! is a vicious deflection. The Rook is invulnerable due to 33.Qb8+ with mate to follow on c8. The tactics are there if we look hard enough.

  IMlday: 12..Nh6!? must be better than 12..Ne7 since it is more active (..Ng4,..Qh4..f6 all become potential ideas) but it is easy to see how Black eagerly sought out his two checks. Plus he is still in the game until 20..Rxc5? instead of 20..bxc5 which looks unclear.
