Oct-02-05  chesskoff: Lizbov vs Topalov, 1988 29. ... Rxh3# would be faster
Oct-02-05  blackjacki2: why was he still playing?
Nov-16-05  Soltari: What's with 26.Kh1?? Why not 26.Hxg4?
Nov-16-05  iron maiden: Because of 26...Qh6+ 27. Kg1 Bxf3.
Nov-16-05  russep: What an amazing game
Nov-16-05  FAME: Good game
Nov-17-05  Soltari: <iron maiden: Because of 26...Qh6+ 27. Kg1 Bxf3.> And then? 28.Qxf3 Rxf3 29.exf3

In this case white has lost a queen and horse, and black has lost a rook, bishop and knight. That seems better to me then just give away the queen and win nothing back.

Nov-17-05  iron maiden: Sure, it's better, but after 29...Bc5+ it's hopeless for White in any case.
