  WannaBe: was 41...Bc6+ a blunder check? It drops the bishop...

  OhioChessFan: <Wannabe>, it was the only way to continue giving check. White had mate on the move any time Black didn't check.
Dec-11-05  Elrathia Kingi: 33..Qc6 is a wasted move. 33..Ba4 or 33..Bc6 34..Bd5 would be an improvement, perhaps.

  WannaBe: <OhioChessFan> Ah, yes. Went back and replayed the game, somehow missed the whole sequence. =(
Dec-11-05  erimiro1: What a royal tour! Also impressing the manouvre with the rook over the 4th. rank (d4-a4-c4-h4).
Dec-11-05  EmperorAtahualpa: Great game! I like the finishing check moves but even more the piece exchanges around move 20-25.
Dec-11-05  Caligula: Fun game. Why did Black resign? He was about to grab a free Knight and check the White King.
Dec-11-05  Averageguy: <Caligula> The Ne4 is defended by the pawn on d3, so black can't take it.
Dec-11-05  Saruman: The game could have continued with:
49.-Kg8 50.Kg2 (50.Kg3 Rg1+ 51.Rg2 still winning but its tricky (51.Kh4?? g5+! 52.Kh5 Qe8+ game over))Qa8 51.e6 followed by e7 winning.

  al wazir: For once, a heroic sacrificial attack that doesn't succeed!

I thought white had a win with 33. Rxg6. If 33...hxg6 then 34. Qh6+ and mate next. But black probably would have played 33...Qc2+ 34. Ka2 Bxd3 (or Qxd3).

Dec-11-05  Saruman: <al wazir> Have a look at this one:

33.Rxg6 Qc2+ 34.Ka2 Bc4+! 35.dxc4 Qxg6 mmm tasty...

Dec-11-05  TopaLove: I think if 24 ... gxh5 then 25.Qg3+ Kf8 26.Bxh7 and there´s no way to avoid 27. Qg8#
Dec-11-05  Saruman: <TopaLove> black has Ke8.
Dec-11-05  sucaba: With 24. Ne4, White could keep the dark-squared B and probably win, for example 24. _ f6 25. Bc3 f5 26. Ng5 h6 27. Qe5 hxg5 28. Qh8+ Kf7 29. Rxh5 gxh5 30. Qxh5+ Kf8 31. Bb4 Rd6 32. fxg5 e5 33. Bc4 Be6 34. Qh6+ Ke8 35. Rxd6 Qxd6 36. Bxe6 .

  dakgootje: love the rook-moves by white =).
But if i was black and white played 33. Rxg6 I would have answerd 33. ...Bxd3+ 34. Qxd3 hxg6 though i think the line of <Saruman> is better
Dec-11-05  Saruman: <dakgootje> I am afraid that runs into mate after Qh3+ Kg7 Qh7+ Kf8 Qg8+ Ke7 Qg7+ Kd8 Qf8#.
Dec-11-05  thesonicvision: 16.Rc4 is something you don't see
every day. it's the kind of move that
lesser players such as myself, never
even consider.
masters always know when to break the
rules.
Dec-11-05  EmperorAtahualpa: <thesonicvision> What'so good about 16.Rc4?

  kevin86: White's king goes a wandering-black can neither gain a perpetual or gain a mate . This time it's the chasers who can't save this one! Great finish!
Dec-12-05  StraightLarsen: mestel is my friend...
Dec-12-05  EmperorAtahualpa: by the way <thesonicvision>, I totally agree with your view on chess against computers!
May-29-06  MorphyMatt: "always check, it might be mate", eh?
Oct-07-06  ToTheDeath: That is some king.

Apr-29-14  rwbean: Can White win after 34...Qc5?
