Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-26-17  Delboy: What a fascinating and unexpected final move. The more obvious 13. ... Rxf8 or 13. ... Rxh5 14. Nxd7 Kxd7 look fine for black, but are not decisive. After the move played either 14. cxd4 Rxh5, and the knight falls with white's central pawns more vulnerable, or 14. Qxh8 Qxc3+ 15. Ke2 Nd4+ 16. Kd1 O-O-O, and white's position is precarious. Earlier white could have tried 13. Nf6+ gxf6 14. Qxh8, when black has good compensation for the exchange
Jan-26-17  User not found: Yeah it looks good but it's not as cut and dried as it appears. If 14.Qf3 ..QxE5+ 15.Be2 ..Rxf8 16.Bf4 ..Qd5 17.Qg3 and black only has a small advantage. Looks pretty though.
