Sep-05-05  dac1990: Excellent find, <samvega>! This shows the pure power of the queen-- it wins despite the material imbalance of RRB vs. QPPP, which, if you use the point system, leaves White only down about a pawn's worth. However, all of white's extra pawns are passed, which provides more than enough compensation. Bravo!
Sep-05-05  SneechLatke: What a game! Just goes to show that long term sacrifices picking up a few pawns with a lasting initiative are often enough to bring in the full point. This one was especially nice, breaking up black's pawn phalanx.

Black is faced with the unenviable task of losing the queen along the g-file or along the 6th rank.

White has to play carefully after winning the Black queen, eg 40. Kxh3?? Rh1#.
