Apr-18-06  Mating Net: Not nearly as devastating as Rossolimo vs Romanenko, 1948, but Rossolimo shows how to take advantage of poor development by Black in both instances.
Jul-30-06  notyetagm: Egads. According to the database, Rossolimo won three games at Bad Gastien 1948 playing the Rossolimo attack in a combined total of 51(!) moves. Yes, that's an average of 17 moves per game!

He won this game in 21 moves; the other two wins were in 12 and 17 moves.

  kingscrusher: After Nf6 does white have Qxf6+ ?! Seen this pattern recently in another classic game.

White can play 22.Qxf6+ and eventually win a piece with a windmill: 22...gxf6 23.Bh6+ Kg8 24.Rg7+ Kf8 25.Rc7+. My computer-unaided brain doesn't see any better, since 25.R1d7 falls into back rank mate.

So 22.Qxf6+ looks good enough, but might <22.Bh6> be even better?
