After <25...Qd7> (most other moves allow 26.Qg7+ Rxg7 27.fxg7#), White doesn't even have to bother with 26.Bb5. Instead, <26.Nf4!> is mate in four, an unexpected line being 26...Rxf6 27.Qxf6+ Rxf6 28.Rxg8#.

Thanks to my Bozo 0.5 engine for spotting that one.

Apr-19-15  Phony Benoni: And I was amazed by the defensive idea of <12...Kh8>. In this sort of Dragon, the king is going to be so much safer there.
