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 ?
I agree, there's lots to look at.
21.gxf4...g3! (threatening Qh2 mate)22.Nxg3...Qxg323.Kh1...Qh424.Kg1...Bh3 and white is in all sorts of bother.
Yup... one could write a small book on the complications of this position.
Let's see what AndyC has say about this. lol
Your first line BQ, I couldn't get it.
Do you have a chess set?! lol
Yes I do have a chess set somewhere.
A book with a diagram on each page ;)
