Dec-31-13  whiteshark: <42...Nh7 43. Re1 Nf7> seems to equalize.

Note how the whitesquared Nf7 covers the 'black holes' around his ♔.

Dec-31-13  Gilmoy: Brave of White to castle long and open c. The exchange sac leaves White with an unchallenged DSB vs. Black's K-side fianchet-hole. Defending the mate threats keeps Black passive. That's more efficacious than the rook!

Black never shatters his own K-side pawns, but <31.f5 48.h5> blows up the fianchetto, and White's K is safer. <54.Bg7+> is appropriate: this B had the most fun all game.
