Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-23-18  Serpentin: une attaque classique via la colonne g.
La contre attaque est insuffisante ce qui permet aux blancs de placer ses pieces a sa guise!

27...h6 (diagramme) est perdant tout de suite. le seul coup qui permet de prolonger la partie eut été 27...h5!

  ChessHigherCat: <Serpentin> Quelle Janowksimanie!

On 27...h5 28. Ng6 Qd6 29. Qxh5?! Nxh5 30. Rxh5 and it looks like black can't prevent 30. Rh8#, but unfortunately black has 30...Bxc4+! 31. bxc4 Qxg6

Dec-29-18  coulapic: @ChessHigherCat: On 27...h5 28. Ng6 Qd6 29. Qxh5?! Nxh5 30. Rxh5 and it looks like black can't prevent 30. Rh8#, but unfortunately black has 30...Bxc4+! 31. bxc4 Qxg6

How about: 27...h5 28.Ng6 Qd6 29.c5! Qd5 30.Qh5 with mate on h8?

  ChessHigherCat: coulapic: That's an idea but SF says in case of c5?! black plays 29..Qd8 instead with an advantage for white but no quick mate:

1) +2.09 (23 ply) 29...Qd8 30.Qxh5 Nxh5 31.Rxh5 Qxg5 32.Rgxg5 Kf7 33.axb5 cxb5 34.Rh7 Bxb3 35.Ne5+ Kg8 and so on.
