Feb-19-04  vishya: very nice and logical attack by vishy
Feb-19-04  vishya: where is the win though?!
Feb-19-04  Catfriend: Where isn't it? What would you do against the coming e6?
Mar-31-04  OktHorse: Yes vishya, as cat so cooly put it ... e6.
May-21-05  schnarre: Crunch!
Nov-22-05  dramas79: <Where isn't it? What would you do against the coming e6?> Cant black play 27...Qe7? I cannot see an immediate win.
Nov-22-05  Mostolesdude: 27...Qe7 28. Qc6 29... Qd8 30 e6. 31 fxe6... 32. Qxe6+ and black is pretty much done.

27...Qe7 28.Qc6 29...Qd8 30 e6. 31...f6
32 Kf7 and the black pawn at d5 will fall soon

Jan-13-06  schnarre: Black is finished (again)!

  Mateo: <Mostolesdude> <27...Qe7 28.Qc6 29...Qd8 30 e6. 31...f6 32 Kf7 and the black pawn at d5 will fall soon>. I guess you meant 32.Nf7. That wins but 32.Qd7! winning too seems even stronger.

  whiteshark: Yes, ...Qe7 should have been played a bit earlier on move 16, e.g. (16...Qe7) <17.Rhc1 0-0 18.Kf1 Rfe8 19.Kg1 Nf8 >

It wins outright!
If black trades queens he can't stop the passer.
If ..Qe7? QxN and
if ..Qf8 (the only square left to guard the knight) then Qh7 mate
