[QUOTE=WMHalsdorf;365222]The sac 21 ... Bxe5 22 dxe5 Nxe5 would be netter answered with Bd4 rendering f6 unplayable.[/quote]Thanks!

Arggh! I did look at 23 Bd4, and initially wrote down my analysis as 23 Bf4(or Bd4) N7c6 24 Bxc6+ Bxc6 25 Bxe5, but then noticed the "or 23 ... f6" line after Bf4, so I erased the "(or Bd4)" ... intending to write out the 23 Bd4 analysis separately from Bf4 ... but I forgot!

[quote]We could also skip move 20. Rxa4 and go straight to 20. Ne4[/QUOTE]... and of course I forgot to write down that line, too after I'd looked at it!

18 ... bxa4 19 Nd2 Ba6 20 Ne4
Now if 20 ... O-O 21 Nc5 (threatens Nd7 rook-fork) Bc8 22 Rxa4
or 21 ... Ra8 22 Nxa6 Rxa6 23 Rxa4 (threatening 24 Rxc4)

I have to leave now, before analyzing 23 ... Bxe5 24 Bxh6
