Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-20-08  Elxiddicus: A nice exchange sacrifice here on the 17th move when Black plays O-O. He gets in return all four of his remaining pieces pointed directly at the white king, and executes his attack very nicely.

I wonder how things would have gone if White hadn't sacrificed a pawn right after with 22. Nd5.

Mar-28-10  capanegra: 22.Nd5 seems to be a bad move, since after the exchanges the black BQ became a monster and White never had the chance to exchange it with Be4 (surely, 25…Rf4! Was an nasty surprise).

Probably something like 22.Rad1 and try to close the diagonal with Kh1 and f3 would have been better, but White will have a passive game anyway.
