Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-14-06  Mating Net: It seems like White was unprepared to face the Dutch. He never moved his Queen and moved his Queen's Knight the first and only time on move 18.

When Black plays an early ...Ne4, White has to exchange the Knight with the Queen's Knight. White putzed around with the wrong Knight while Black expanded. Once Black played ...21Nd3 the table was set for a mating attack.
