  tpstar: <barefootin> Important chess lessons:

1) White does well to advance e5 & f5 against this Sicilian setup.

2) 31. Qxh7+!! was brilliant and decisive, ending with a sweet Discovery idea.

3) Don't go barefoot.

See you around. =)

Oct-14-05  trolls: Niftily ripped by the Doc! -altho,
I might point out that technically
31 Rxf7! is the more accurate.
Oct-14-05  barefootin: See the girl with the diamond riiiing!

Don't yu know she can...SHAKE THAT
THING! - we're backdoorin'!!
Oct-14-05  Jenspooch: Thanx. I didn't actually need the
accompaniment, but yes, 31 Rxf7??
does get 'back-doored' by 31...Qd1+!
Stay alert till the end!
Aug-20-07  computer chess guy: The Queen sac wins too, but 31. Ng5 is a forced mate:

31. Ng5 f5 32. Nxh7 Rxg6 33. Qxg6 Bh4 34. Ng5 Qxg5 35. Qxg5 Re7 36. Rxh4+ Rh7 37. Qf6+ Kg8 38. Rg4+ fxg4 39. Qf8#
