  ChessCoachClark: I appreciate this game as a valuable teaching tool. After 18. ... g5 disconnects the power line between the Queen and the Bishop (making that Bishop an En Prise piece), 19. Nf5 does more than one job. It not only restores protection to that Bishop, but it also ATTACKS A SQUARE-- e7. Having seen too many students neglect to identify an attack on a square, here is a case in point that is not only good, but wins the game. The Royal Fork is a case of beauty as well. Glad to see it here at CG!

Be well.
Be safe.
