Sep-17-18  DanielBryant: Is Black's sac of the d pawn thematic in this line?

  wtpy: I dont play the Keres much, an occassional speed chess game, but black is much worse in this game until white plays 22 Rhd1. White needs the rook on the h file, and if he keeps it there, he breaks through first.

  Check It Out: <wtpy> Indeed. 22.hxg7 Bxg7 23.Qh3 immediately puts black on the back foot.

  landshark: <Check It Out> Interesting line possible here - 22. hxg7 Qxd5 23. gxf8=Q+ Kxf8 24. Bc5+ Re7 25. Rxh7 Qxf3 26. Qxf3 Nxf3 27. Bxe7+ Kxe7 28. g6 Ng5 29. Rg7 Kf6. Now if 30.Rh8+ Kg7 31.Rxa8?? Re1#.
To me it looks like -Qxd5 is a good response to 22.hxg7 and I think it at least holds if not gives Black the edge -
Sep-17-18  Ironmanth: Wow! Great game; smashing attack.
Sep-17-18  moodini: <landshark> I think that 27. g6 or 27.Rh3 put black in trouble
Sep-17-18  paavoh: @<landshark>: After 24.Bc5+, 24...Kg7 25.Bd4 Re6 26.Qh2 Kf8 27.Qxh7 Rd8 28.f4 also looks good for White. An interesting position.

I think 27 g6 before Bxe7 because ng5 does not work as then rh8+ can take a8 as the d2 square is no longer covered.
