Jan-18-06  shamekovich: Krogius was just prone to win here.
Sep-30-12  jrofrano: By far one of the best finishes I've ever seen. Incredibly if Rxe8 Qxe8 Rxc7 if the rook does nothing (ie. Rxa6) then Qh4 decides (with the threat of Qh7#. Wowzers

  fredthebear: If 30...KxRf7 31.NxQc7.

If 30...BxNe8 31.RxQc7.

If 30...Bf5 31.RxQc7 BxQe4 32.Nf6+ Kh8 33.Rxh7#.

So perhaps the Black queen should move to safety? There's no prime spot for her.

Well, if for example 30...Qc8 31.RxBf8+ KxRf8 32.Qe7+ Kg8 33.Qg7#.

Yes, 30.Ne8 is impressive!!

Sep-02-18  Granny O Doul: White, already two pawns up, exploits a pin with 30.Ne8.
