  Zenchess: Unless I'm missing something obvious, Black missed a win with 11...e5, since two White pieces are hanging. 2400's can make mistakes too.
Aug-18-09  xqdashi: zenchess, i think you missed something....

11..e5 12. Ncxe5 Nxe5 13.Nxe5 Nxe5
14. Qd5! attacking both the R on a8 and the pinned N on e5, regaining the piece and ending up up a pawn.

Aug-18-09  WhiteRook48: Stopa right here!
Feb-14-11  AnalyzeThis: White puts a queen on d6 and black decides to ignore it and move away. Kind of like ignoring a Sherman tank right next to your house.
Jul-15-14  rodantero: Probably, after 21... Qd4 would follow 22.Bd5!! (threatening 23.Rad1 24.Bxc6 25.Qe7#) 22.exd5 Nxd5 23.Rc8 e6
