Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-16-05  barefootin: 27 Qg7+! is the unstoppable threat.

We evidently need to go back as far
as move 7 to resurrect here - viz:
7...Qb6! - threatening nothing, yet
8 Qe2 is prevented, as is castling.
It's a good move, played in related
situations. It virtually wasn't extant
in the 80's, however.
I understnad Winslow can be quite
the openings maven when needed.

Jan-24-11  ekw: I'm pretty sure I play 26.Rf4 (1-0). I'll try to find my scoresheet.
May-06-14  TheBish: Yes, 26. Rf4 makes more sense, as the only way to stop tripling up on the h-file is 26...g5 after which 27. Rxf5 is quite simple (if 27...Qg6 28. Qxg6 fxg6 29. f7#).

I think the first real mistake was 12...d5(?) as after 13. e5 Black's best defender (the knight) is removed from the king's defense and White's attack can't be stopped. Even though that knight goes on to trade itself for a potentially strong attacker (the bishop on d3), that trade brings a new attacker (rook) into the picture which plays a key role.
