Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-28-08  screwdriver: I thought white was going to play 13 Bxh7ch instead of Qg3. White's method was simple yet very effective.
Apr-21-18  paavoh: Black may have seen a mirage with 7.-Nxf2. 7.-Qxe7 would have been OK.

  morfishine: Pathetic game by Black, looks like NN incognito

However, its a good example of how utterly lost one can quickly become, no matter the ranking, by making the simplest mistake, miscalculation or neglecting a basic theme [ie: development].

Either that or Black simply didn't take her seriously til it was too late

  catlover: Well played by Stefanova. In the final position, I kept looking for ways that black could avoid checkmate, maybe by losing some material, but it looks like there is no escape.

If 17... h6 18. Qd8+ Kh7 19. Bxg6+ Qxg6 20. Qf8 h5 21. Rf7+ Qxf7 22. Qxf7+ Kh8 23. Ng6#.

If 17...Nc6 18. Nxc6 h5 19. Bxg6 Kh8 20. Qxh5+ Kg8 21. Bf7+ Qxf7 22. Rxf7 any move, 23. Qh7#.

Yeah, 7...Nxf2 was an NN sort of move.

Apr-21-18  Ratt Boy: I really like the simple 17.♕g5. All of White's pieces are developed and active; one of Black's is, and she's not exactly active. Boom! I now invite you to resign.
Apr-21-18  Euphoric: <screwdriver: I thought white was going to play 13 Bxh7ch instead of Qg3. White's method was simple yet very effective.>

There is no advantage of bishop sacrifies. Black is up and after knight check, black king may return to its safe square(g8) even it can jump to g6.

  Check It Out: A good example of piece activity being more important than a measly pawn.
