  al wazir: Why can't black play 26...Be8 ? If 27. cxd4 then 27...Bxg6 wins. If 27. Qxe8+ Rxe8 28. cxd4 exd4 or 27. Qxe6+ Bf7 28. Qxe7+ (28. Nf6+ Bxf6 29. Qxf6 Qd7) Kxe7 29. cxd4 exd4, black is roughly even. If 27. Nf6+ then 27...Kf8 28. Nxe8 (28. Nh7+ Kg8) Qa7 (28...Qd7? 29. Rf1+ Kg8 30. Nf6+), and I think black can defend.

  al wazir: Ah, I think I see the answer: 26...Be8 27. Nf6+ Kf8 28. Nxe8 Qa7 29. Rf1+ Kg8 (29...Ke7 30. Qxg7+ Kxe8 31. Rf8#) 30. Nf6+ Kf8 31. Nd7+ Kg8 32. Rf7.
Sep-23-05  WTHarvey: <al wazir> and if 26. ... Qc4 Nf6+ Kf8 Nxd7+ Kg8 Nb6 or if 26. ... Qe3 Nf6+ Kf8 Nxd7+ Kg8 Nf6+ Kf8 Nh7+ w/Ng5 It's rare when Black resigns and White's down a piece anyway.
Dec-27-05  Timothy Glenn Forney: Another brilliant game,it is difficult to see the end. I see as 26...Be8 27.Nf6+ Kf8 28.Nxe8 Qd7 29.Rf1+ Ke7 30.Qf7+ Kd8 31.Qxd7 Kxd7 32.Nxg7 . Its great Smirin saw 6 moves ahead and resigned.This seems like the most logical move order.
Dec-27-05  OneArmedScissor: <Timothy> Timothy... your move order is about the most illogical (unlogical?).

28. ...Qd7??????????

29. ...Ke7??? loses big time to 30. Rf7+! Kxe8 31. Rxd7+ Kxd7 32. Qxg7+ Kd6 33. h4 and white will win.

Dec-27-05  Timothy Glenn Forney: Yes, I don't know why I didn't see Rf7+ its much better for white.28...Qd7 is only way I see to protect the bishop, it also attacks the knight. I don't think that deserves 10 question marks. Either way black resigned
Jan-31-06  Timothy Glenn Forney: Interesting Shredder8 liked my move 28. ♕d7 but shines new light on 26...♗e8 Here's the analysis-26...♗e8 27.♘f6+ ♔f8 28.♘xe8 ♕d7 29.♖f1+ ♔e7 30.♘f6 ♗xf6 31.♕xf6+ ♔d6 32.♖d1+ ♔c7 33.♕xe5+ ♔c8 34.♕h8+ ♔c7 35.♖xd7+ ♔d7 36.♕xa8 White wins.
May-09-06  Shajmaty: <OneArmedScissor> 29...Ke7 is the only move: which one is better? <Timothy> Yeah, 30. Nf6 is even stronger than 30. Rf7+.
