O-O f5 14. exf6 $2 { Although this move has been played before (with success), it does give Back too much easy play and White's pieces soon become targets.} Qxf6 15. Bd2 $2 { In view of Black's next move this looks like a mistake.} d5 16. Qe2 {Black is already well on top. Michael now increases the pressure and his pieces simply flow majestically into the heart of White's position. Compare the above position to the final position some 12 moves later.} (16. cxd5 Bf5 {wins the bishop on d3 e.g.} 17. Qe3 (17. Qf3 Qd4+) 17... Rae8 18. Qg3 Qd4+) 16... Ba6 17.
