  fm avari viraf: White's beautiful attacking combination destroyed Black's stubborn defence & won him the exchange & the game.

  fredthebear: 13...Kf8 looked unusual (Black is already worse) but White topped that with the bold 15.Nc7!! attempting to distract the Black queen so the White queen can form a battery with her bishop(s). Thus, if 15...QxNc7 16.Bf6 and White is threatening mate. So, Black declined to accept the knight sacrifice and dropped the exchange. Black's response to the invading knight was fairly proper given the circumstances.

  fredthebear: Delayed acceptance 16...QxNc7 is also met by 17.Bf6 threatening checkmate.
