  Jim Bartle: Why is 32. Bb6 necessary? Why not Nh6 immediately? Need to keep bishop or queen out of c4 so f7 and g8 are unprotected?
May-06-09  RobertLangdon: Another under rated gem.Here Alexander Matanovich, former editor in chief of the prestigious Chess Informant fall victim to some deep spectacular tactics.<Jim Bartle> the point is if 32...Qxb6 then 33.Nxf8 Qc7 34.Nd7! Qxd7 35.Nh6+ grabbing the queen.
