Kibitzer's Corner

  fredthebear: 14.Bc4+ Kh8 has the Black king cornered. Black thwarts a Greco's Mate (16...KxNg7?? 17.Qh5#) with 16...g6 but drops the exchange.

20.Qd3 makes it difficult for Black to develop his light-squared bishop safely, and threatens 21.Qh3+ which would collect the dark-squared bishop interposing on the h-file. Resignation is in order.
