Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-02-03  bishop: "Games similar to this one" show 14.Rg1 as the new move in this position in this database. As it is White's intention to transfer his Queen's Rook to the h-file it seems to me that 14...f5 was not the correct way to play for Black.
Jan-02-03  drukenknight: what was the purpose of 20...Rg7 perhaps 20...Qa5?
Jan-05-03  skid: He must find a way to put the a8 rook into play.
Jan-05-03  ChessPraxis: <To drunkenknight> The purpose of 20 ... Rg7 was to protect g6. White was threatening 21. Qxg6+!! If 21. ... hxg6 then 22. Rh8+ Kg7 23. R3h7#. If 21. ... Rg7 then 22. Rxh7 Rxg6 and 23. Rh8 leads to mate. White would mate in one to three moves.

  Honza Cervenka: ChessPraxis, are you sure that (for example after an indifferent move like 20...a5) 21.Qxg6+ Rg7 22.Rxh7 (Quite interesting continuation seems to be 22.Qxg7+ Kxg7 23.Rxh7+ as 23...Kg6 leads to mate through 24.R3h6+ Kf5 25.Rf7+ Kg4 26.h3# or 25...Ke5 26.f4#) 22...Rxg6 23.Rh8+ Kf7 leads to mate? I don't see it.
Jan-08-03  ChessPraxis: <to Honza> : Yes, you're right. I was careless. I had the right first move, but when you're sacrificing Queens you should be sure of all the moves.
Jan-01-13  qqdos: (B89) not (B88). In The Find Similar Games section, it is suggested that 18.Rg3 was a novelty. See however Szmetan vs Liberzon, Buenos Aires 1979 - Chess Informant 28/377. Szmetan played 18.Rg3! Bd7?! (Rf7!?) 19.Rgh3 Rf7 20.Qd3! . Although 27.Qf4 forces Black to give up his Queen, a stronger and quite neat finish would be the immediate: 27.Qh8+ Kf7 28.Bd8 Rg7 29.Nd5!(only move) Bxd5 30.Rh7 Rxh7 31.Qxh7+ Kf8 32. Qxf7 .

  fredthebear: FTB prefers the simple, forcing finish utilizing a B-Q spearhead 27.Qh8+ Kf7 28.Rh7+ Rg7 29.QxRg7+ Ke8 30.Rh8#.
