  patzer2: This game is listed as number 1637 in batsford's Encyclopedia of Middle Games.

If 20. Kh1, then 20...Qh4 .

Black has to be careful because of his material deficit on the attack here. So for example if 23. Qf3!? (instead of 23. Bf4??), then Black has a clear advantage (but not a clear win) after 23...Rg6+ 24. Qg3 Re2!! 25. Qxg6 fxg6 (with at least a draw by perpetual in hand).

If 25. Qd2, then 25...Qf3+ is winning.

Sep-01-04  Giancarlo: Here's what I see:

<21..Bg2!> 22.Kg2 rc6 23.Bf4**

Now if 23.rh1 then 23..rg6 24.Kf3 Qg4#

23..Qf4 24.rh1 rf6 25.rh2 rg6** 0-1

** 26.Kh1 losses to <26..re1!> 27.Qe1 Qf3

Hope that helps.

Jun-09-08  mezzieh: It's a game of many mistakes. I wonder why White played 8. Bd5 move the same piece twice in the opening and allowing the exchange of important Bishop for only a Knight.

Kirilov was desperately looking for a pawn grab so he opened the center for enemy Bishops, central files for enemy Rooks and he left his own Kingside offguard.

And then he played something I really don't understand: 19. Nc4 why not 19. Nf3?

  tpstar: ChessBase 8.0 has this game ending with 26. Kh1 Re1+ 27. Qxe1 Qf3+ 0-1.

Great tactics by Black starring the Double Bishop Sacrifice.
