Nov-26-05  Resignation Trap: After 37...Bd8, White mates in three moves. Find it!
Nov-26-05  aw1988: It's not exactly mate after Rxh7+ Rxh7, but Rxh7+ Kxh7 Qxf8...

  Honza Cervenka: <aw1988> 38.Rxh7+ Rxh7 39.Qxf8# is more convincing finish. Of course, 38.Rxh7+ Kg8 39.Rh8+ Kg7 40.R1h7# is not much better alternative for black.:-D

  plang: This is a good example of the value of looking at older games. No one plays the Ruy Lopez with black this way now (particularly the knight maneuver Nh5 & Nf4). This game shows why.
Jun-28-08  arsen387: great Kside attack by Maroczy
