Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-16-04  zb2cr: For those who don't get why Black resigned, after 22 ... Nxf6; 23 Rd7+. Now there are several variations:

(a) 23 ... Nxd7; 24 Rxd7+, Qc7; 25 Qxc7#.
(b) 23 ... Qc7; 24 Rxc7+, Kb8; 25 Qc8#.
(c) 23 ... Kc6; 24 Rc7#.
(d) 23 ... Kc8; 24 Rc7+ (double check), Kd8; 25 Rxc5, Bxc5; 26 Ne4. White has 2 Pawns and the Queen against 2 Rooks, but it seems as if after a few checks, Black will lose one of his Rooks.

  suenteus po 147: Thanks, <zb2cr>, that is most helpful in understanding this game. Also, you meant to write: (a) 23...Nxd7; 24 <Qxd7+,> Qc7; 25 Qxc7#
Jul-16-04  zb2cr: <suenteus_po_147>, so I did. Thanks for the correction.
May-23-07  nhat8121: I dont see any problem with Qxf5
Jan-29-09  jrofrano: I think the problem here was 15. ... a6? this just seems to waste a tempo and lose the game. It seems also his idea of c5, was perhaps a move premature, instead on 13. ... 0-0-0 then the thematic c5 break. Black wastes too much time and white does a fine job of punishing him for his innacuracies.
Jul-04-09  WhiteRook48: after 22...Qxf5 23 Rxf5. Black's a piece down
Sep-03-14  sls: How come? Only two pawns down.
