[I]But here's an interesting alternative:[/I]
[B]17 Ng5[/B] threatening to take the fpawn!
< snip >
If 17 ... Nxe5 18 d4 Nd3 is rather invasive but 19 Nxf7 is even more so. (19 ... OO 20 Nh6+ or 19 ... Rf8 20 Nd6+)[/QUOTE]I didn't give 18 ... Nd3 the respect it deserved. It's [I]very[/I] invasive, but can be rooted out.
[B]17 Ng5 Nxe5 18 d4 Nd3 19 Nxf7 OO[/B] (not 19 ... Rf8 which loses a bishop after 20 Nd6+) [B]20 Nh6+[/B]
Then after 20 ... Bxh6 21 Bxh6 Rxf1+ 22 Bxf1 Nf5 23 Bg5 Bf3 (23 ... Rf8 24 Bxd3 cxd3 25 Nf2 d2 26 Rd1) 24 Rb1 Bxd1 25 Bxd3 Bf3 26 Bf1
Black has a weak epawn and we have the two bishops, which should allow us a slight advantage.
