  Chessical: A beautiful finishing flourish from Taubenhaus exploiting the a1-h8 diagonal. Moreau might have equalised with 15...c6!?, but he then loses control of d5 with Nh5 and further weakens his k-side with 19... g6?

<20.exd6!> is an attractive winning Q sacrifice exploiting Black's weak back rank 20...Bf6 21.Bxf6 Rxe3 22.Rxe3 Qd7 23.Bxd8 Qxd8 24.d7! Ng7 25.Nf6+ Kf8 26.Nxh7+ Kg8 27.Nf6+ Kf8 28.Re8+.
