5/24/2011 – White's pieces are clearly targeting the black king. What would be your evaluation of the position after the sequence 20.Ng5 (diagram) hxg5 21.Nxg7 with the idea 22.Qh5+?  A) dangerous attack for White; B) advantage to Black; C) balanced if both sides follow up correctly (perpetual check). A toughie! The solution is here, but first ponder over it with a larger version of the diagram.
