[Another nice line I've seen during the game: 15...Qa7 16.Ned4 Nxd4 17.Nxd4 0-0 18.Nc6! Qb6 19.Bxh7+ Kh8 (19...Kxh7 20.Qh3+ Kg8 21.Ne7# ) 20.Rf3! , and I felt White should win: 20...Qxc6 21.Rh3 Rfc8 22.Qf3 Qb6 23.Kh1 , and mate is coming.; 15...g6!? /\ 0-0. But I think White should be a bit better anyway.] 16.Bxh7+ Kxh7 17.Ng5+ Kg6 [17...Kg8 18.Qh3 Qxg5 19.fxg5 Bxe2 20.g6 fxg6 21.Rxf8+ Rxf8 22.Qe3+- ] 18.f5+ [18.f5+ Kh5 , and here I was planning to give a nice mate in the center: (18...exf5 19.Nf4+ ) 19.Qh3+ Kxg5 20.Rf4 Rh8 21.Rg4+ Kxf5 22.Rf1+ Kxe5 23.Qg3# Of course, 20.Qe3 mates even faster :)] 1-0
