Jun-04-11  David2009: I'm sorry that Black lost. This is the sort of rubbish I like playing as Black against 1.c4 - Sicilian reversed, keep on pushing those pawns. The triumph of hope over experience really: that extra tempo for White turns the scales in so many variations. For example the Yugoslav attack colours reversed is a disaster. But I keep on hoping.

<Phony Benoni>: thanks! Very well calculated by White

  kevin86: I love the final ring around the rosie game with white's bishop and queen! Or,was it a dosie-doe?
Jun-04-11  kia0708: wow, what a game !!!
Sep-23-17  Altairvega: 34. Rd6 cd6 35 Qd5+ Kf8 36 Bh6 if gf6 37 Rg8+ Let us look what happened in the gane
Sep-23-17  Altairvega: I like it. Both rooks had to be sacrificed!
Sep-23-17  Walter Glattke: 42.-Kg8 43.Qh8+ Kf7 44.Qg7#

  al wazir: I went with <34. Rxd6 cxd6 35. Qd5+ Kf8> 36. Qxd6+ Re7 (36...Kg8 37. Bxh6) 37. Rxg7+ Kxg7 38. Qxd7+ Kg8 39. Bxh6 Qd7 40. Qxf6.

But this is the second time around for me.

  wtpy: Altairvega, That is the line I chose.Re7 looks like only good defense. 37 Qd6 and black can't take bishop with 37 gh6 because 38 Qf6 Rf7 39 Qd8 Qe8 40Rg8 winning the queen.
Sep-23-17  AlicesKnight: Not today for me, I'm afraid. Compare J Mason vs Winawer, 1882 for two-rook breakthrough including line and square clearance.
Sep-23-17  nalinw: Fantastic set of sacrifices - if Kxh6 White seems to be left with almost nothing - but it is enough to mate ....
Sep-23-17  drollere: 34. Rxd6 followed by Qd5+ was obvious. The second R sacrifice was the surprise; I would have played Bxh6 to open the file for the rook.

  jith1207: The interesting thing about the puzzle position is that black had all 8 pawns after 33 moves!
Sep-23-17  goodevans: I've scrolled through nearly three pages of posts (not so easy on a mobile) and I can't find a definitive answer to <38...Rg8>. Did I miss something?
Sep-23-17  Clement Fraud: I must be improving - if only a little: I quickly saw the the idea of vacating the d5 square for the Queen via the sacrifice Rd6, but I failed to see the forcing sequence. I was looking at 34.Bh6 gh6 & 35.Rd6 (white having opened the file for his Rook on the g-file, and the a2-g8 diagonal for his Queen).
Sep-23-17  Boerboel Guy: <goodevans: I've scrolled through nearly three pages of posts (not so easy on a mobile) and I can't find a definitive answer to <38...Rg8>. Did I miss something?>

How about: 39. Qxf6+ Kh7 40. Qf7+ Kh8 41. Qf6+ Kh7 42. Qh4....

  malt: Come up with 34.R:d6 cd6 35.Qd5+ Kf8 36.B:h6 Re7 (37.Qa8+ Qe8 spoils it)
Back to the board

  malt: Second stab;
34.R:d6 cd6 35.Qd5+ Kf8 36.B:h6 Re7 37.Rg6
Sep-23-17  claudi: 36.Bf4 would be a fine move.

  malt: <claudi: 36.Bf4 would be a fine move.> Looks good
36...Re5 (36...Qd7 37.B:d6+ Re7 38.B:e7+ and 39.Q:c4) 37.Q:d6+ Re7 38.R:g7 K:g7 39.Q:e7 Kg8
Sep-23-17  Whitehat1963: Amazing king hunt!!

  Once: Way beyond my pay grade today.

Three piece sacrifices in a row? In my dreams, in my dreams.

Sep-23-17  steinitzfan: This game reminds me of yesterday's. Black just can't send any relief to the kingside and it's hard to see why except through brute calculation.
Sep-23-17  newzild: I went for 34. Rxd6 cxd6 35. Qd5+ Kf8 36. Bf4 (instead of 36. Rxg7, which has too many variations to consider).

Now 36...Rd8 runs in to 37. Bxh6!

Sep-23-17  Otoy: Eight moves in total to complete the combination. Patzers won't see that long. Sigh.
Sep-23-17  BxChess: <Goodevans>:
39. Qxf6+ Kh7
40. Qf7+ Kh8
41. f6 Qd7 (what else?)
42. Bg7+ Rxg7 (42..Kh7 43. Q h5#)
43. fxg7+ Kh7
44. g8=Q+ and mate to follow.
