Dec-26-10  Whitehat1963: Why is this over?

  Sastre: 23...Qxe6 24.Rxh7+ Kg8 25.Rh8+ Kg7 26.Qh7#.
Dec-26-10  Elsinore: <Whitehat1963> Black has to do something with the Queen (theoretically); either move it or take (Qxe6). After that, I think it's 24.Rxh7+ Kg8, 25.Rh8+ Kf7, 26.Qh7#.
Dec-26-10  Elsinore: <Sastre> Sorry, I was typing while you were posting lol.
Dec-26-10  Whitehat1963: I see it now, obviously, but in that case, isn't 23. e6 superfluous?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Sastre: I think the purpose of 23.e6 was to stop the Black king getting to e6 after 23.Rxh7+ Kg8 24.Rh8+ Kf7 25.Qh7+. But you're right in that White could have won without 23.e6. For example, <23.Rxh7+ Kg8 24.Qh5 Bf6 25.Nxf6+ Rxf6 26.Rh8+ Kg7 27.Qh7#>.
