Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-18-05  DAL9000: White was either a sadist or a show-off, since he could have won easily with 22. ♗xh7+, picking up Black's Queen. Instead he gave Black false hope by taking with the Knight.

But whether White was showing off or just being a jerk who wanted Black to suffer, at least he produced a very pleasing winning move, 26. ♕e7!, angling for a pretty finish: 26... ♕g5 27. ♖h1! ♗b7 28. ♗h7+ ♔h8 29. ♗g6+ ♗xh1 30. ♕h7#.

Sep-18-05  DAL9000: By the way, could someone tell me how White would answer 22... ♖f5? I'm sure he still has a winning advantage if he just takes the Rook with his Bishop, but man, he could've won the Queen the move before.

So I'm guessing ♖xf3 instead of ♖f5 is forced, but for reasons I'm not seeing.

  WannaBe: After move 22 (by white) white has a advantage of 4+ (According to Shredder 9) and the best move for black is Rf4.

  offramp: Is there something wrong with the game score? Apart from the problems mentioned by other people, what is wrong with 21.Qxh2 ?
Sep-10-15  OttoQuadro: @ offramp: Nothing! I found another source (the Tournament book) and the scoresheet is the same: both the players blundered, offering their Queen for free! After 21...Qxd6 22.Bxh7+ Kh8 23.Rh1 g6 24.Bxg6+ Kg7 the White attack is in a blind alley.
