Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-27-03  dippel: The black queen is trapped! 12...Qxd4 and 13.Bxh7+ Black can't avoid trouble with 12...Bf4, because after 13.Bxf4 Bxg2 - other retreats allow 14.Bg5 again - 14.Rg1 Bb7 15.Be5 and White wins.
Oct-05-03  Bears092: 14....Bb7?? would be a HUGE blunder.

After 14...Nc6 15. Rxg2 Nxd4, white has the advantage, but it's still a game.

Apr-19-07  wolfmaster: Black's best chance is 12...Bxg2 13.Bxf6 13... gxf6 (Bxh1? Qg5! and no escaping mate) but then Rg1 aand Black's days are over.
Mar-12-13  Sem: Well done, Lugovoi!
