  An Englishman: Good Evening: After 17.0-0, White's position looks completely safe. Less than ten moves later, he resigns. It proved fascinating to try and discover what went wiggly-piggly.

We know that after 25...Rd5, Black has a big edge--26.Nb3,Red8--and then White blunders material with 26.Be4. But what went wrong before then?

First guess: maybe 19.Ng5 wasn't best. 19.e4,Bg4 looks annoying. Perhaps 19.Bf5 works? Maybe White didn't appreciate the strength of 20...Nd5! intending ...f7-f5 and ...e5-e4.

Surprisingly interesting game. Maybe White's position after 17.0-0 is actually rotten.

Sep-16-20  areknames: < Maybe White's position after 17.0-0 is actually rotten.> I don't think so, the game was lost because of the blunder 26.Be4?? Not sure Black has this big edge after 25...Rd5, something like 26.f3 followed by Ne4 and the position looks equal.
