Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-13-03  bishop: 19.Qf3! leaves Black helpless. White's pieces are all excellently placed,and the threats of d5 and Nf5 are hard to meet. If the position of his Queen and King's Bishop were reversed Black would have half a chance.
Aug-18-05  WMD: But 19...Rd7 or ...Re8, allowing the Queen a retreat square on d8, is fine for Black.

Sep-27-06  forbismarck: Black resigned as there is mate in 2.....1.Ke8 , Re1+...2.Kd7 , Bf5#.
Sep-03-09  WhiteRook48: 21 Nxh6+ overload
