Is it worth it?

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If we look at this game below, this was played in 2008 with some really great players. However, at the end, black makes a crucial blunder, thus losing. Let's take a look here.

 


As you can see black was planning on trading knights after 46. fxg6 Qxe6, but if you look closely, black cannot take on e6, otherwise it's Qb8! and game over. Clearly black just overlooked that in this game when he was looking ahead. So, now let's look at what black should have done (annotations included, go back through to view them):





























Hope it was informational!

    So 46. Qxe6  (= QxN )   Qh7+  (will not do, but Qb8=#) that's why he gave up!

    I'm sorry, but I don't see where black would want to play Qxe6.

    It was blacks turn, so Qxe6... and if QH7+ . Black is not Checkmate jet , but white gets his extra Queen soon! Black will lose sooner or later. even g6 had not be sufficient, answer was than Qh6 , and if pxp  then  Qg7#

    Black could play g5 or  Qe8 , it helps a little , because Black stands very bad with those double pawn!  Kf7 does not work Q h5+ and can not realy block it!
