Dec-15-05  THE pawn: 19.a6?? Qxc6! 20. Rd6 Nxf6! to get the queen out and it's a two pawns up end-game.
Dec-15-05  lopium: I don't really see how it is possible but I totally agree with you, and I don't know why. Did you mean 19...a6? Then your moves? Anyway that's hard to understand black's and white's moves here.
Dec-15-05  THE pawn: yeah woups I screwed up my annotation. Here they come again, I prolonged it a bit to show why the queen is saved.

19...a6?? 20. Qxc6! it looks like the queen is trapped with... Rd6 but 21. Nxf6! saves the day ...gxf6 22.Rxd6 cxd6 23. Qxb6 and it's two pawns up
