  Honza Cervenka: Very nice attack.
Feb-27-20  Gaito: This game was annotated by A. Roizman in one of his books. He said that perhaps instead of 8...d6, Black could have tried 8...Na5!? 9.Bd3 d5! with complications "not unfavorable for Black".
Feb-27-20  Gaito: 13....Nd7? "a weak move", according to Roizman. He suggests 13...dxe5 instead, although White would still be slightly better.
Feb-27-20  Gaito: If 20...Bxd5, then 21. Qxd5 Nxe5 22. Nxh7+ Ke7 23. Qxe5+ Kd7 24. Rd1+, and White wins outright. In this variation, if Black plays 21...Re7 (instead of 21...Nxe5), then White wins with 22. Nxf6+ Ke8 23. Qg8+.
