Feb-24-05  davewv: Wonder how he could justify the sac 20. Rxc6?? at the time?
Apr-15-06  CitricAcid13: It removes the knight guard on the e7 square. If the queen attempts to run off of the 7th rank, Rxg7# so it is essentially two rooks for a queen and knight, plus more exposure kingside.

  Chessical: <16...f6?!> is too weakening, instead he had to move his Queen out of the firing line to <b4> or <h4>.

<16... Nc6?> is even worse, <17. f6> Qb4 18. Qh5
