  whiteshark: After Blackburne's <20.Bxg7> sacrify black missed the best (and forced) response with <20...Bxf3 21.Bxf8 Rxf8 22.gxf3 Nxd3>

Black would have been slightly better as ♗+♘ are stronger than ♖+♙ in this position.

  GrahamClayton: A great example of how a centralised Queen can disrupt the placement and effectiveness of several minor pieces, leading eventually to the win of a piece by 39. a5 and 40. ♕xa6.
