  GrahamClayton: Matulovic gets excellent compensation for his double pawn sacrifice. However, I can't see a quick win if Zaradic accepts the sacrifice with 24...fxg5, eg 25. ♕xg5+ ♔e8. Am I missing something?
Aug-09-12  Poulsen: Without analyzing the position the Lg6 idea came to my mind: 24.-,fxg5 25.Qxg5+,Ke8 26.Lg6+,hxg6 27.Qxg6+,Ke7 (28.Kd8,Sf7+ and the queen is lost) 28.Qg7,Ke8 29.Qxh8+ etc.

Most of this is pretty much forced, and I think white has the upper hand no matter what.

I also briefly looked at 26.Lxh6?? - but that won't work due to Qf8+ and Rxh7. The same goes for 26.Qg7.
