|Nov-06-09|| ||OlavDalkeith: very nice final move. Knight on d3 is pinned and cannot take. Pawn on c3 is pinned against the queen. Taking with c3 looses the queen. And King to b1 is mate in one by Re1++ as knight on d3 is still pinned.|

Only if Holmes was talking to himself.

I guess you mean <20 cxd4>, after which 20 ... Nb4+ 21 Kb1 Rxe1 looks pretty fatal (22 Qxe1? Qa2+ 23 Kc1 Qc2#).

Isn't that a TV show - "Holmes on Holmes"?
