Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-07-03  bishop: The Hastings winner gets beaten quickly. It was most important for Black to develop his Queen's Bishop, instead he lost time trying to preserve his King's Bishop.

  misguidedaggression: the threat is 21.Re8+ kh7 22.Qxh6+ gh6 23.Rh6# and on 20...Rxf5 21.Re8+ Kh7 22.Qxf5 g6 Qxf7#

On 20...Qd8 21 Nxh6+ looks good for white and

20...c5 is met by 21.Re8+ Kh7 22.Qxf7 Qf6 (Rxf5 23.Qxf5+ and g6 gets mated while Qg6 24.Rh8+ isn't much better) 23.Qg8+ Kg6 24.Rg3+ Kh5(24...Kxf5 25.Qd5+ Qe5 26 Qxe5#) 25.Nxg7+ Kh4 26.Rh3+ Kg5 27.Nh5+ Qg6 28.Rg3+ Rg4 29.Rxg4+ Kxg4 30.Qxg6 Kh4 31.Re4#.
