Nov-11-04  Lucky1: It seems a bit premature for black to be resigning - a piece up.
Nov-11-04  sandy simpson: How about 18.e5 and 19.Bxd5 - can the King escape?
Nov-11-04  mjk: 9... ♘e2++ 10.♔h1 ♘xc1
Nov-11-04  Lucky1: <sandy simpson> I don't see an immediate threat.
Nov-12-04  mjk: <Lucky1> 17... ♕b6 18.e5 has the threat of 19.♕xh7 ♔e7 20.e6+. So maybe 19... g6 20.dxc6 ♕xc6 21.exd6+ with 3♙, development, Black's ♔ in the center all for the piece. <sandy simpson>'s probably right that this is enough.

Anyone, what do the computers say?

Nov-12-04  Saint: 9. c3 Nc6+ ??

Better was:
9. c3 Ne2+ !
10. Kh1 Qh5

Oct-28-06  Ashram64: how can black loose in this position... man.. he must suck
Mar-16-11  WhiteRook48: 9 c3 Ne2+ 10 Kh1 Qh5...
I think 11 Qe1 can hold the position

  erniecohen: <mjk> 17...♕b6 looks dead lost for black. But after 17...♕a5 18. exd6+ ♔f7 19. f5 ♕xd5 20. fxg6+ ♔g7 21. ♕xd5 cxd5 black still has a good shot at a draw.

White has to do more than "hold" the position. He's down material. He must play energetically. If he plays slowly, black can develop, blockade whites center, and get his rooks into play. White will end up losing

  PawnSac: <mjk: 17... Qb6 18.e5 has the threat of 19.Qxh7 Ke7 20.e6+. So maybe 19... g6 20.dxc6 Qxc6 21.exd6+ with 3P, development, Black's K in the center all for the piece.>

I think you mean 17... Qb6 18.e5 with the threat 19.Qxh7 <Kf7> 20.e6+. So maybe <18>... g6 <19>.dxc6 Qxc6 <20>.exd6+

The line being 17... Qb6 18.e5 g6 19.dxc6 Qxc6 20.exd6+

But after 17... Qb6 18.e5 g6 19.Bxd6+! and now if

a) ..Kd7 20.dxc6! (threatening Bxf8 discovered check and white has his peice back with a powerful passed pawn) 20. ..Kxc6? 21.Qc4+ forking the rook.

b) ..Kf7 20.f5! gxf5 (..Bxf5 21.g4!) 21.e6+ Nxe6 22.Qxf5+ Ke8 23.Qf7+ Kd8 24.Qxg8 and blacks position totally collapses

c) ..Ke8 20.Na3 and white has dangerous threats. If black plays 20. ..Bxd6 then Nc4, if 20. ..cxd then 21.Nb5! Bxd6? 22.exd6! with multiple threats of Nc7+, Rae1+, or Qxd5. White has 3 pawns for the piece with attacking potential.
