Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-13-15  Conrad93: What's wrong with 20...Nc5? If white plays 21. Bxc4, then 21...Nxa4!? 22. Nxa4 23. Qb4 looks pretty good.

I don't have an engine, but it looks like black at least has a draw.

Jan-13-15  Conrad93: Actually, 21. Kb1 Nxa4!? 22. Nxa4 Qa5 23. Nc3 b5 also looks good for black.

Again, I can't verify it without an engine, but b4-b3 is hard to stop.

Jan-13-15  Conrad93: Maybe 22...Qb4 is more accurate.
Jan-13-15  Conrad93: Ah, I missed h4-h5. White's attack is too strong.
