Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-05-05  hayton3: Zurb should have played 23.Bxe5 - thus he would have capitalised on his slightly better position. Instead he decides to make losing moves.
Dec-06-05  sucaba: On 23. ♗xe5, ♗c5+ 24. ♔h1 ♘xe5 25. ♕xe5 ♖e7 26. ♕g3 ♖e3 27. ♖f3 ♖fe8 gives black sufficient initiative to hold the game.
Dec-06-05  hayton3: <sucaba> Fritz picks the same line as you. Still, the outcome in this line is preferable to the next two moves he played in the game. My point still stands - and it doesn't require extensive analysis to support it.
Apr-02-13  anjyplayer: Without doubt, my move would have been 20. fxe5
Nov-02-15  RKnight: <anjyplayer: Without doubt, my move would have been 20. fxe5> And "without doubt" would you have lost your Q after the logical continuation: 20 fxe5 dxe5, 21 Bxe5 Nxe5, 22 Qxe5 Bc4+?
