  Honza Cervenka: Pretty game. I like white's exploitation of different pins of black piece on e5 square.

By the way, the gamescore is not correct. The 28th move of black was Qe7, not Qf7.

  takchess: This would be a good puzzle of the day after 28.
May-05-15  A.T PhoneHome: This is nice! Rook trade on e5, after that Bishop pins e5 Knight to another Knight; on the very next move White trades his Bishop to that e5 Knight to get his Queen to pin the now-e5 Rook to g7 mating square.

Last, but certainly not least, 31.Nf7 threatens the e5 Rook, however, it cannot leave its e5 square due to mate if it does.
