|Sep-25-04|| ||zorro: I took a few minutes to see that after 25...Qxb6 White mates with 26. Bc4+ Rf7 27. Qg6+ Kh8 28. Rh5# |
|Sep-25-04|| ||zorro: 28. Rh5+ Rh7 29. Qxh7# that is :-) |
|Sep-26-04|| ||tpstar: <zorro> I'm afraid the Pf5 blocks your mating line. On 25 ... Qxb6 26. Bc4+ Rf7 27. Bxf7+ Kxf7 28. Rxf5+ and now 1) 28 ... Kg8 29. Qg6+ Kh8 30. Rh5# 2) 28 ... Ke8 29. Qe6+ Kd8 30. Rf8+ Be8 31. Rxe8+ Kc7 32. Rxc8# 3) 28 ... Ke7 29. Qg5+! Kd6 (29 ... Ke8/Ke6 30. Re5+; 29 ... Kd7 30. Rf7+) 30. Rf6+ Kc7 (30 ... Kd7 31. Rf7+) 31. Qe5+ (no escape via b8) Kd7 32. Rf7+ Kd8 33. Qd6+ mates. For Line 3, White must attack on the dark squares and prevent ... Be8 defending which allows the Black Queen to cover d6. Fine win by Kasparov. |
|Oct-11-04|| ||zorro: er.. I think i stepped over pf5 :-)
Still i don't understand your line 2, after 30...Kc7 instead of 30...Be8 doesn't K escape?
|Oct-27-05|| ||Ulhumbrus: Following Black's castling, Kasparov wins by playing three advances of a rook, each advance of a rook threatening to win by moving the rook thereafter to the right, to the g file. Black answers the threats presented by the first two advances of a rook , but the third advance is decisive as it presents a double threat, winning a piece by attacking it as well as threatening to move to the right, to the g file. This attack may be rare if not unique, although I hesitate to use the latter adjective owing to the vast number of games played up to date.|

According to Rybka, black might have been able to defend against the Nf5 piece sac with 20..Rg8 - being safer than castling:

Can anyone see a way for White to break through here?!

Someone has figured this out even before Rybka: Y Shulman vs Y Yakovich, 1998
|Jul-25-10|| ||Ulhumbrus: After 20...Rg8 21 exf5 both of the central files are open and White threatens potentially the check Re1+|
