Jun-30-05  calman543: Looks like Alburt tried too hard to avoid perpetual check and ended up losing.
Apr-14-06  EmperorAtahualpa: <calman543> Yes, I would agree that 20.Kg2? is the losing move here. I think White overlooked 21...Bxf2!

After the final position follows 25.Kg4 h5#

By the way, Black missed a neat little combination 13...Nfxd5! 14.Nxd5 Nxd5 15.Qxd5 Bxa1! (16.Rxa1 would be impossible due to the queen fork 16...Qf6!)

Good game by Shirazi!
