    I was reading this book called Australian Chess Brillincies by Kevin Casey.  In the introduction he said that "19...Be6 ! ....The extraordinary (and far from obvious) point is that 20.Nxc7 is answered by ...Rxf4!! with amazing complications! i'll leave the reader to work out some of these astonishing variations themselves (annotating this move alone would require another entire book !)

     Really ? could you show me some of them ?

    OMG!

    I agree, there's lots to look at.

    Here's one:

    20.Nxc7?...Rxf4
    21.Nxe6...Rxf1
    22.Be3+...Qf2
    23.Nf3#

    Another line:

    21.gxf4...g3!  (threatening Qh2 mate)
    22.Nxg3...Qxg3
    23.Kh1...Qh4
    24.Kg1...Bh3 and white is in all sorts of bother.

    Yup... one could write a small book on the complications of this position.
