Jun-15-07  Whitehat1963: 22...Qxe6 is a crucial mistake that allows the subsequent queen sac, but what happens if black plays 22...Nxe6 instead?
Jun-15-07  Gilmoy: 22..Nxe6 23.Qxh6 White keeps the extra pawn and a strong attack, and Black still has gridlock. Possible White plans: [A] Re1-e6-g6, Nxf5; [B] Qh5, Ng6, Rh3; [C] Nf3, Bxg7, Rh3.
