    Do you mean 21... Nf6 (rather than 22... Nf6) ?

    What a complicated position!

    Hmmm, I think I can get away with:

    22.Ngxe6

    PS Sorry to hear you have been ill, I hope you are feeling better soon. :-)

    Yeah today I feel quite a bit better- wondering why I didnt see the Nx move at the moment. Looked at all the options, and I think there is one thing to do.

    Good game:-) *handshake*

    Thank you for the game.

    I think I spent about half an hour last night going through all the variations after 22.Ngxe6, and came to a similar conclusion... (the Knight sac is the reason I played Bg4 after moving it from e2 to f3 only a couple of moves earlier).

    eg: 22... Nxg4 23.Nxd8 Qc7 (threatening the h2 pawn with Q & N), 24.Re8+ Kg7 25.Nge6+ fxe6 26.Nxe6+ (forking King and Queen)

    or: 22... fxe6 23.Bxe6+ Kg7 24.Bxc8

    or 22... Rxd4 23.Nxd4 Qxc5 24.Bxc8

    However, if I had been Black, I would have played on for a few more moves to see if White could come up with the best moves.

    eg: 22... Nxg4 23.Nxd8 Qxd8 24.Nxb7 Qc7! (hitting both the pawn on h2, and the knight on b7)... is interesting however either 24.Qf4 or even 25.Qf4 should both leave White the exchange and a pawn up.

    I wish you well in our next encounter, (Round 2, colours reversed) . :-)

    In any case, I think it was a much more interesting game than if I had just taken your knight after your first move 19... ;-)

    Cheers,

    EE :-)
