Sep-18-21  Brenin: 19 Nxd5 exd5 20 e6 looks lethal, e.g. 20 ... fxe6 21 Rxe6, threatening 22 Qxd5, 22 Bxd5 or 22 Rxc6.
Sep-18-21  stacase: 19 Nxd5 is what I would have done over the board. Two Pawns and control of the center of the board for a Knight looked like a pretty good deal. Well 20.Bxd5 didn't happen - why I don't know.

  al wazir: I think black does better with 22...Nd8: 23. Re8 Nxf7 24. Rxc8 Rxc8 25. Qxf7, and now either 25...Qg6 or 25...Bc5.

If 25...Qg6 26. Qa5, then 26...Rxc2. After 25...Qxg6 26. Qxg6 Nxg6, white's c2 ♙ is weak, e.g., if 27. Rc1, then 27...Bd3.

Sep-18-21  mel gibson: I saw the first few moves easily.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: I completely missed 20 e6. It's the start of the weekend and I didn't feel like thinking too hard. One of the many reasons I didn't become a chess professional.
Sep-18-21  Brenin: <al wazir>: If 22 ... Nd8 23 Re8 Nxf7 then 24 Qxa8 looks better than Rxc8, e.g. 24 ... Rxa8 25 Rxa8 Kg8 26 Re1, threatening 27 Ree8.

  agb2002: White has the bishop pair for a bishop and a knight.

Black threatens Ndxe5.

The first three moves that come to mind are Nxd5, Ng4 and Bxd5.

The attacks seems to vanish after 19.Bxd5 exd5 20.Nxd5 Qb7 21.e6 (21.Nf6+ gxf6 22.gxf6 Nf8 looks winning for Black) 21... Nf8 and also Bxd5 has the serious problem of surrendering the control of the light squares, in particular the diagonal a8-h1.

19.Ng4 looks slow and is met with 19... Qd4, touching b3 and trying to trade queens.

19.Nxd5 exd5 (19... Qd8 drops a pawn and still gives White attacking chances with 20.Nf6+) 20.e6 (20.B(Q)xd5 are met with 21... Nf8, controlling e6):

A) 20... fxe6 21.Rxe6, with the threat 22.Rxc6, looks very good for White. For example, 21... d4 22.Bd5 Kh8 23.Qh5 Nf8 24.g6 h6 24.Bxh6 Nxe6 (24... gxh6 25.Qxh6+ Kg8 26.Re8#) 25.Bg5+ Kg8 26.Qh7+ Kf8 27.Qh8#.

B) 20... Nf8 21.exf7+ Kh8 (21... Kxf7 22.Qxd5+ should be winning) 22.Qxd5 (22.Bxd5 Rd8, unclear), with three pawns for the piece and attack, looks very promising for White.

Sep-19-21  TheBish: A better try for Black seems to be 25...Rc8 26. Bd6 Ng6 27. Re1 Nce7 28. Bxe7 Bxg2

But now 29. Bf6! (much better than 29. Kxg2 Qa7! and White has problems untying his pieces, i.e. 30. Qe6 Qb7+ 31. Kg1 Re8 ∓ or 30. Kg1 Qd7! 31. Qe6 Qxe6 32. Rxe6 Re8 33. Rxg6 hxg6 and Black should win) 29...gxf6 30. gxf6 Rg8 31. Re8 and White wins.
