Sep-15-08  DoubleCheck: 11. Bxe7 ?? Qxe7
12. Nxe4 dxe4 Wins for black

16. Ne5 safe since f-file pawn pinned but couldn't captialise

Sep-15-08  whiteshark: <DoubleCheck> What about <12.Bxe4 dxe4 13.Nd2> for White?
Sep-19-08  DoubleCheck: <whiteshark>
12. Bxe4 dxe4
13. Nd2(attacking with Nde4) b5! (Helps queen to b6)
14. Ndxe4 Be6!
15. Qd1(or Qc2) (Forcing whites queen to retreat) 15...Nxe4
Sep-19-08  whiteshark: <DoubleCheck> At the end of your line (and 16.Nxe4) black is a pawn down. Same is true for <15.Nxf6+ Bxf6 16.Qc2>

and I don't see much compensation for it.

Sep-19-08  DoubleCheck: <whiteshark>
I havent got a super computer to analysis this for me, but i still think that with black attacking queenside with ...Qb6 and then maybe centering ...Rad8 ...Rfe8. White has his pieces on kingside and queenside i.e. not working in concert.

Although i do take your point that in endgame that extra centre pawn could be the vital difference.
