  Gilmoy: <18.c4> so that Q-sees-d3 sideways!

18..Qh4 was Black's last chance, and even has some life from the threat of 19..Nh2+ 20..Qxf4. Bf5 isn't hanging (yet) because Ng3 is pinned to the mate at f2.

May-08-13  Jamboree: Black should have played on even after her queen was trapped because after 19. Nf3 then 19. ... Nxf2!? gives white many chances to counter-blunder. For example, 20. Nxh2 Bd3+!? and if white thoughtlessly tries to "run away" with 21. Kg1 then Ng4+ and suddenly black is back in the game with either a perpetual check or a crazy windmill of piece captures and discovered checks. If white instead sacs the queen back with 21. Qxd3, going for a piece-up endgame, black can try to win the pawn at b2 and try to survive down a piece for two pawns.

Instead, white must find 21. Ne2! holding on tight, after which black can only try 21. ... Re4 and hope for further complications because all of white's pieces are pinned and tied down, despite being a queen up. In truth black is still lost in that position, but for the moment white is in a tangled straightjacket and perhaps black will get lucky if white takes a wrong step.

No one ever won or drew a game by resigning!
