Jan-10-09  Touchdown: Does it possible that White sacrifices his bishop with 14.Bxc7 Kxc7 15.d5 with the idea Qxa7 or Qf4 ?
Jan-10-09  810609: <Touchdown> 14.Bxc7 Kxc7 15.d5 Qd7 16. Qf4+ is ad because of 16. ... Bd6 17. Qd3 Kb8 18. Nxe4 Qa4 (maybe something like Rd4 now, but hard to find any good continuation for White, isn�t it?) and you got very little compensation for the sacrificied bishop. But 14.Bxc7 Kxc7 15.d5 Qd7 16. Qxa7 looks interesting, with possible Rd4 coming next?

  FSR: Cabrilo in Informant 30 assesses the final position as equal. He doesn't indicate that Hort lost on time, but that is very likely what happened.

  Stonehenge: Yes, according to Dutch newspapers Hort lost on time.
