Kibitzer's Corner
May-08-05  cade: This finish is incredible.

24...Bxe6 25.Nf3!!

Ne5 wins the trapped Queen, and if a space is made for the Queen to escape to the Black King can be forced to f7 and the Knight can fork the Queen and King.

Sep-14-06  ToTheDeath: Another Planet Morozevich bombshell. Black is curiously helpless at the end.

24...Bxe6 25. Nf3! Nf6 26. Qh8+ Kf7 27. Ne5+ Ke8 28. Qxf8+! Kxf8 29. Nxg6+ Kf7 30. Ne5+ Ke7 31. gxf6+

Moro is the man...
