/* To me it seems, that Black can even play for a win with 14...Rf8 15.Re5 Rxf3!? 16.gxf3 Kf8 17.Rae1 Nf5 18.Rxf5+ Bxf5 19.Qc5+ Qd6 20.Qxf5+ Kg8 - better pawns.  */

21.Re6 at the end of this line already seems to force draw in all lines.
And also 16.Qg8+ Rf8 17.Qxg7 draws immediately.

Heyke/Fette give 15.Qe2 Be6 13.Bg5 (13.Ng5!? Botterill, might be White's best try) Qd5 14.Bxe7 Kxe7 15.Qc2 f6 16.Ng5 fxg5 17.Re5 Qxd4 18.Rae1 Rae8 and Heyken/Fette give 19.Qe2 (19.Rxe6+ draws) Kd7 20.Rd1 as slightly better for White, but according to Fritz
Qd6!? leaves Black slightly better!?
What must I say? Try 6.o-o.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

greco attack and NCO

Hi,
the position arising after

1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5 4. c3 Nf6 5. d4 exd4 6. cxd4 Bb4+ 7. Nc3 Nxe4 8. O-O Nxc3 9. bxc3 d5 10. cxb4 dxc4 11. Re1+ Ne7 12. Bg5 f6 13. Qe2 fxg5 14. Qxc4

is assesed as +/- by NCO., but an old analysis by
Rosenzweig gives 14... Rf8 as equal. I couldn't find a
way to an advantage for White.
Any suggestions?
Bernhard
