  offramp: After 17.Qh5+ is there a win for white after 17...Kd8. Surely white would play the obvious 18.Rd1+, and then it looks like black has to play 18...Bd6. Then what?

May-27-12  Octal: I think 17 Qh5+ Kd8 18 Rd1+ Bd6 19 Bxc4 Qxc4 20 Qf7 (or 20 Bb6+).

19 ... Bb7 and I'm not sure what.

  sisyphus: 19...Bb7 loses to 20.e7+! Qxe7 21.Bc5.

My friend Fritz calls it even after 19...Re8 20.Qf7 Bxe6! 21.Bxe6 Qxf7 22.Bxf7.

  Benzol: This encounter won the best game prize for Zaitsev.
Apr-17-17  morfishine: A wonderful attack by Zaitsev

I wonder if Black plays <16...cxb3> instead of <16...gxf6> if that makes a difference. Now Black has 17...bxc2 to answer <17.Rf7>

I wonder if that helps since White was already down a piece


Nov-11-18  alfamikewhiskey: <This encounter won the best game prize for Zaitsev.>

That makes a lot of sense.
