  tpstar: <coolthing76>

1) 27 ... Qxe6 28. Nxf7! wins a piece (28 ... Qxf7/Kxf7 29. Bd5) or the exchange (28 ... Qe7 29. Nxd8)

2) 27 ... fxe6 28. Nxb7! wins a piece (28 ... Rxb7 29. Bxc6) or the exchange (28 ... Nde5 29. Nxd8)

Thus Black resigned. =)

Jul-30-05  coolthing76: Thank you tpstar. It was the second variation that I missed.
Apr-28-08  thitho: What a beautiful combination of 6 Knights moves, chasing poor black queen... these are the kind of moments when I'd like to be the algortihms in the head of the champ; does he see the six moves? Or does he only approach the complications in which he puts the opponent? And if it is so clear in his mind, why isn't it that clear in Sax's? He is also a brillant mind; shouldn't he resign three or four moves sooner?

It makes me think about these Kendoka who know before the hit that they have lost and they resign -acknowledge they have lost without one single movement anyone but themselves can see...
