  Honza Cervenka: Threatening 24.Qd4+ with mate. If 23...c5, then 24.Qxc5 Qg4 25.h3 Qe4 26.Rc8+ Rxc8 27.Qxc8+ Kg7 28.Qc7+ Kh6 29.Rxb2

  tpstar: <Honza Cervenka> Please evaluate 23 ... c5 24. Qxc5 Qg4 25. Qe7 and Black's Queen is tied to g7. After 25 ... Qg6 26. Rxb2! wins the Knight (26 ... Rxb2 27. Rc8+), while after 25 ... h6 26. Qf6+ Kg8 27. Qf7+ (27. e7? Bxb1) Kh8 28. e7 (28. Rxb2?! Qd1+) and Black can't hold the Queening square plus the Nb2 (28 ... Bxb1 29. e8=Q+ Rxe8 30. Qxe8+ Qg8 31. Qf6+; 28 ... Bg6 29. Qf8+!). Finally, 25 ... Rg8 26. Qf6+ chops major pieces, then 29. Rxb2.

  Honza Cervenka: <tpstar> 25.Qe7 in your line has a little tactic hole in simple 25...Bxb1. Correct continuation seems to be 25.h3 Qe4 [25...Qg6 26.Rxb2 Rxb2 27.Qf8+ Qg8 28.Qf6+ with mate; 25...Qh4 26.Qd6 (threatening Qe5+) 26...Qf6 27.Rf7 Rd8 28.Rxf6 Rxd6 29.e7 ] 26.Qf2 (26.Qe7 Qe5 27.Rf1 or 26...Qg6 27.Rxb2 or 26...Qe3+ 27.Kh1 Qh6 28.Rb7 Rxb7 29.Qxb7 wins too.) 26...Qe5 27.Rxb2! Qxc7 (27...Rxb2 28.Qf8#; 27...Rg8 28.e7 Qxc7 29.Qf6+ Rg7 30.e8=Q#) 28.Rxb8+ Qxb8 29.Qf6+ Kg8 30.Qf7+ Kh8 31.e7
Mar-16-05  Volmac: 23...c5 24.Rf1!! Na4 (24...Be4 25.Rg7!) 25. Qxb8! Qxb8 26.e7! Bf5 (26...Qxc7 27.e8Q+ Kg7 28.Qf8+ and mates) 27.Rxf5 Kg8 28.Rg5+ Kh8 (28...Kf7 29.e8Q+ Kxe8 30.Rg8#) 29.Rd7 with forced mate.
