Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-28-09  bachus: If 28..Kf7, then 29.Nd8+! is mate in 4.
Mar-17-14  zanzibar: Funny, Black can defend the K-side by moving the knight to the Q-side with 21..Nc6.

It's sharp (ie. a must-find for Black).

A sample line might go 21...Nc6 22.Bc4 (22.Na4 better?) Qe7 23.Qh3 Nc7 24.Ne2 b5

where both knights redeploy Q-side.
