  GrahamClayton: 28...♗c5 - attack and defence at the same time. Rey Ardid defends against Yates' threat of 29.♖f8+, and threatens 29...♖e1+.
Jul-22-10  Wyatt Gwyon: Sucks how most Yates games that get notice are his losses. Dude could play some chess. I'd like to see somebody give him his due sometime.
Dec-20-12  Amarande: I'm guessing that 30 Kh2 Qxc1? 31 Qxc5 Re8?? was a little too much to hope for. (32 Rf8+ Rxf8 33 Qxf8+ Kh7 34 Qf5+, draw)

After Kh2, in fact, the rest of the finale is a pretty King-hunt, in which Black completely ignores the Bishop and instead of becoming a Rook up actually sacrifices one: 30 ... Rxg2+! 31 Kxg2 Re2+ 32 Kh3 Qf1+! (Better than Qh1+, as seen two moves later) 33 Kg4 Rg2+ 34 Kh5 Qxf3+ and mate next move.
