  Calli: Looks like Black could simply play 23...Qxd1+ winning.
Mar-25-06  aw1988: Yeah, he missed it.
Mar-25-06  Holden: <Calli> Were you thinking 23...Qxd1+ 24.Rxd1+ Rxd1 25.Qf1 Rxf1+ 26.Kxf1?

After that line I don't see how black can stop 27.Nf6 - after that, nothing looks clear to me.

  Calli: <Holden> You are right! I messed up - somehow had the pawns in a different position in my mind. Stand corrected, Qxd1 is a blunder.
Mar-25-06  likestofork: <Holden> After White gets in the Nf6 shot, the h7 pawn is going to fall, and then things should be real clear.
Mar-25-06  aw1988: Furthermore, I missed Nf6!
