  Honza Cervenka: 27....Re1+ was a pretty tactical evasion freeing enclosed Queen.

  tamar: Why doesn't Paulsen take the piece with 24...Qxd2?

25 Bxh7 Be3 looks solid for Black. Or am I missing something?

  tpstar: <tamar> I believe White wins Q for RB after 24 ... Qxd2 25. Bxh7 Be3 26. Rd1 Qf2 27. Rf3 and now 27 ... Qe2? 28. Bd3+, or 27 ... Qxf3 28. Qxf3 Bxh7 29. Qxe3.

  Honza Cervenka: Well, I don't know. The best what I can see after 25.Bxh7 Be3 is 26.Rd1. I think that 26...Qf2 27.Bd3+ Bh6 28.Qg6 (threatening Rxh6+) 28...Qf4 leaves black in quite uncomfortable position but I don't see anything decisive and black is still a piece up. Maybe Paulsen was not sure whether the outcome would have been favourable for him or not.

  Honza Cervenka: <tpstar> Ouch, I completely missed 27.Rf3. It looks like the right solution.
Apr-24-06  sneaky pete: <tpstar> I was about to post the same line, but then wondered: why not, after 27.Rf3 .., play 27... Bxh7 and have 2 bishops and a rook for the queen?

  Honza Cervenka: Well, I should do anything else than kibitzing chess games today as I am totally blind.:-/

  tpstar: <sneaky pete> You're right - I saw that later. So unless there's another line, 24 ... Qxd2 is a big improvement over 24 ... f5. Thanks. =)
