But then why did he play Rd2?}) (20. c4 Qh3 21. Qxg6 $1 hxg6 22. Bxh3 Nxe3 23. Rd7 Nxf1 24. Rxe7 $16 {gives White excellent chances.}) 20... Rd8 21. c4 Nxe3 $19 22. Qxd7 Rxg2+ 23.

Nd1 (10. dxc6 bxc3 11. e3 {might be a safer way for White to play.}) 10... cxd5 {Black has two pawns for a piece. But one of them is doubled on the a-file and hence it seems as if Black should have sufficient compensation for the sacrificed piece.} 11. g3 e6 12. Bg2 Rb8 13. O-O $6 { With this move the rook can come to b5 and gobble up another pawn.} (13. Nd4 $13) 13... Rb5 14. Ne5 Bd6 15. Nc6 Bd7 16. a4 Rb7 17. Nd4 a6 {Because of these knight jumps, White did not lose material, but he had to give Black a strong passer which is a logical consequence of the play.} 18. Ne3 Rc7 19. f4 O-O 20. h3 Bc5 21.
