Jan-26-14  InspiredByMorphy: 22.Re1 Be3+ 23.Kh1 and with no immediate threats, 24.Ng1 likely to follow. It seems like black's initiative dwindles then. Am I missing something?

  perfidious: The exchange is also lost after 22.Re1 Be3+ and ....Bf2, though possibly getting the DSB in return is better for White than the way things actually went.
