  GrahamClayton: White resigned as he will lose his Queen in order to defend against the threat of 18...♗h4+ and subsequent mate. 14.♗a4? allowing 14...♗a6! and control of the a6-f1 diagonal was an error.
Mar-11-11  joupajou: There were a series of inaccurate moves until white's 17. f3??, which was really bad. What options did white have?

How about 17. Qg3 or 17. Rc1 ? Don't have the time to analyse those lines right now, but I'd be tempted to try either of those moves.

  FSR: Yes, 17.f3 was quite a whopper, letting Black set up an unusual form of Boden's mate. See'... for more examples.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: Black is OK!
May-31-20  stanleys: 16...Qc7! is a good move preventing the white's obvious idea of 17.f3 and 18.Kf2, castling by hand.The refutation is pretty
Jun-23-20  Brenin: <joupajou>'s alternatives 17 Qg3 or Rc1 look as if they keep White in the game, though with a slight (and well-earned) disadvantage.
Jun-23-20  newzild: Ouch!

An easy move to miss, though.

White's real howler was to cede control of the f1-a6 diagonal.

Jun-23-20  goodevans: Nice pun - Game Collection: Black is OK! by Andras Adorjan

  Fusilli: After Black takes control of the f1-a6 diagonal, I find 15.e4 dubious at least. Why make the center more likely to be opened when your king is stuck in the center? Even worse, since 15.e4 was for Nd2 and f3, a flawed plan.

Without checking with the engine, I am considering 15.Qb3, since I think that b5 is urgently needed (black's 15...b5 allows for 16.Qd3).

Jun-23-20  Brenin: <Fusilli>: 15 e4 does indeed look dubious, but after 15 Qb3 Nf6 16 b5 cxb5 17 Bxb5 Bxb5 18 Qxb5 Qd5 (or perhaps 18 ... Rc2), Black seems to have all the advantages: better B, castled K, control of the c-file, 2:1 Q-side P majority. Maybe White has to get himself castled by 15 Bc2 and 16 Bd3, although this gives Black time to prepare for c5.
Jun-23-20  ndg2: Black is MORE THAN OK!

17...Nd5 falls down on white like a hammer after 17. f3?? As others pointed out Ba4 already was bad.

Jun-23-20  Cibator: Had to look up the pun .... but the book referred to did come out a long time after I'd given up active play!
Jun-23-20  RandomVisitor: Maybe 4.g3 is the best way to attack the Queen's Indian:
