Apr-17-04  iron maiden: Very nice play by Norwood. It took courage to give up the knight. White can't take the bishop on move 20 because of 20...Nxe2+, when White must give up the queen to prevent forced mate, as in: 21. Kf2 Qh4+ 22. Kf3 Qg3#, or 21. Kh2 Qh4+ 22. Bh3 Qg3+ Kh1 Qxh3#.

  YouRang: <iron maiden> I had wondered about that bishop 'sac' on move 20. Thanks for explaining why it couldn't be taken. Oh how I wish I could see moves like that. In general, a queen and knight work very well together to produce mating attacks.
Sep-13-06  amtr: Norwood also could of won with
20.hxg4 Nxe2+ 21. Kf2 Qh4+
22. Kf3 Qg3#
Nov-11-06  hedgehog: Does this mean that 14.. Bd7 was played in order to tempt White into 'trapping' the Knight?
Jun-20-07  not4bprofit: Yes, it was. I heard him lecture about the game years ago. He heard that there was a peice sack around that position and so played a move that lost a peice and gave himself some compensation!
Oct-03-12  vinidivici: Nice game,
