  Benzol: Nice attack. 19.♗h3 is not the sort of move that's easy to spot.

Jun-20-07  Steven Willard: If 20,Bxe5 does White has a chance?
Jun-20-07  Gilmoy: <S.W.: 20.Bxe5> dxe5 21.Qxa8 (otherwise White's a piece down) Bxg2+ 22.Kxg2 Qf2+ mates: 23.Kh1 Qf3#, or 23.Kh3 Qf3+ 24.Kh4 Bf2+ 25.Kg5 Qf4+ 26.Kh5 Qh4#.
Jun-20-07  tatarch: Gilmoy-- why not 21.Qxf7+ after dxe5? Then black must recapture with the queen, and white can recapture with the bishop, and then if the king takes the white bishop on f7 black has both bishops en prise. At first glance, it looks to me like white will be up at least a pawn or two after 20.Bxe5 and should win. Am I missing something?
Jun-20-07  tatarch: Oh wait nevermind, I'm an idiot. White would still be down a bishop. But, he would have 2 or 3 extra pawns, so maybe it's drawable.

  GrahamClayton: An unusual delayed double-rook sacrifice, with three moves between the sacrifice of the first rook (16...Nd5}, and the second rook {19...Bh3).

Jul-14-14  GumboGambit: Quite a wild and passionate Thomas Crown Affair!
