Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-09-05  farrooj: Very nice sacrifice at the end of this game, very unexpected
Jun-09-05  F47: Weird. Black shifts his knight from e4-c5-e6, does anyone think this wastes tempo?
Jun-09-05  aw1988: Nope.
Jun-10-05  Kangaroo: IF White played
28. Qxe6+ Ke8. 29. Qxg6+ Kd8,
it would be hard to save the Queen and Bishop. For instance, 30. Qg7 Rxh6! and then 31. Qxh6 Bh2+ and White loses the queen.
Jun-10-05  Shams: <Kangaroo> would not 30.Re6 do the trick?
Jun-10-05  Kangaroo: <Shams: <Kangaroo> would not 30.Re6 do the trick?>

Unfortunately, 30. ... Bh2+ will still lead to the removal of both rooks - Black one on b6 and White one on e6.

I agree, however, this would have been a better way for White to contniue, unless someone else will turn the computer on and figure out that White will lose the game anyway.

Jun-13-05  DP12: Kangaroo your line is a bit off as white could reply Qxh2 but Bh2+ and Rxh6 makes sense. maybe white could have maintained his position with 28.Bf4!?.
Jun-13-05  Kangaroo: <<DP12>: Kangaroo your line is a bit off as white could reply Qxh2 but Bh2+ and Rxh6 makes sense. maybe white could have maintained his position with 28.Bf4!?>

I agree that the line contained an error.

What is more important: WHY did White not play 28. Qxe6+ Ke8. 29. Qxg6+ Kd8 - was there any serious and dangerous continuation that stopped Schneider and made him chose the less attractive move that led to his defeat?

Feb-17-08  Crystalzyy: a victory of tenacity...very much Ni Hua like...
