  Chessical: Another delightful combination from Duras. If Boucek had played 14.Nc3 he would have still been in the game. 14.Qg2? is an ugly move that is hard to rationalise.

He overlooks Duras' temporary Q sacrifice after which he is lost. Duras' 19th move is an elegant deflection that tops off the combination.

  dickweed: The position after 13 .. Rhg8 holds a lot of hidden dangers for white.

After 14. Nc3 for instance black wins immediately with 14. .. Qxh3 15. gxh Bf3+ 16. Rxf3 Rg1#

and 14. Nf3 looses material to
14. .. Qxf3+ 15. Rxf3 Bxf3+ 16. Qg2 Bxg2

perhaps Ng2 is best, I'm not sure

Jun-30-05  psmith: <dickweed>: "After 14. Nc3 for instance black wins immediately with 14. .. Qxh3 15. gxh Bf3+ 16. Rxf3 Rg1#" No, 16... Rg1 is not mate, because the rook on a1 is in the game after 14. Nc3.
