  al wazir: 22. Ree7 was winning also.
May-17-17  Amarande: The ending would be: 23 ... fxe5 24 Qxd5+ Kh8 25 Nf7+ Rxf7 (else Philidor's Legacy) 26 Qxf7 Qh6 (else mate in one) 27 Qe8+ Bf8 28 Rf7 and Black is toast.

It's saddening that the tempting 27 Rxe5 in this line is a distant second - it certainly wins, however, Black will not play 27 ... Bxe5 allowing mate in two, but instead play 27 ... Nc6 to shore up the first rank, after which there seems naught better than 28 Re8+ Rxe8 29 Qxe8+ Bf8 30 Rxc6 with a long and stodgy victory in the exchange-up Queen ending ...

May-17-17  SeanAzarin: <Amarande> Seeing the comment about Philidor's legacy reminded me of the description of Philidor and his chess-playing style I saw once.

"Philidor's Defence is named after Francois Andre-Danican Philidor, because, as far as is known, he never played it. Philidor's ideas were too far in advance of his time to be understood, and have since fallen too far behind the times to be of any use. He is therefore considered the first great chess thinker."

  mjmorri: 17...Bf5 seems to be a waste of time, and 20...f6 is the kind of move that I would make!
May-17-17  Pasker: I did notice the interference move quickly but not with the bishop but with the rook instead which also attacks the queen. Why not use your heavy piece when you play such a beautiful tactic and make it even more stylish.
May-17-17  Strelets: <SeanAzarin> Just like how the Lucena position was first published by Alessandro Salvio and the Grünfeld Defense was first played by Moheshunder Bannerjee.

  ajk68: 20...f6? He really thought about that move?
