Oct-27-06  Aspirador: The computer says 24...Ka8!! and black is OK. 24...hxg3? seems to lose the game.
Oct-27-06  Tariqov: yes, Ka8!? seems to be a nice intermediate move before hxg3.Forcing the Queen to go away.

  al wazir: If 30...Nc6, then I suppose white plays either 31. Be6+ Rd7 32. Bxd7+ (32. dxc7 Rh7 33. Bxd7+, etc.) Kxd7 33. Rb7 Rc8 34. Rxa7 or 31. Bxa6+ Kd7 32. dxc7+ Kxc7 33. Rb7+ Kc8 34. Re7+ Kb8 35. Rb3+ Ka8 36. Bb7+ Ka7/Kb8 37. Bxc6+.

Does anyone see a more incisive continuation for white?

  khense: Why isn't 30 c6 the move?
Oct-27-06  chesslearning: 30...Nc6 31. d7+ Rxd7 32. Bxa6#
Oct-27-06  PivotalAnorak: <CL> 30... Nc6 31.d7+ Rxd7 32.Bxa6+ Kd8 is not mate
Oct-27-06  moodini: I don't see mate but I think white is at least a piece up:

30...Nc6 31. Be6+ Rd7 32. dxc7 and then 32...Rh7 33. Rxd7 Rxd7 34. Rd1 Ne5 35. Rxd7 Nxd7 36. c6 with a easy win.

if black tries 32...Ne5 33.Rxd7 Nxd7 is followed by 34.Rb8+ winning a rook.

Oct-27-06  moodini: If 30...Ng6 31. Be6+ Rd7 32. Rb3 and I don't think black can avoid mate on b8. Black can play 32...Nf4+ and then various checks but I think in the end black's checks run out and white takes or blocks blacks pawns, black has to play Kd8 and white plays Rb8#. For example 33. Kg3 Rh3+ 34. KxN RxR 35. RxR and then white captures / blocks the pawns.

However, I normally spot these lines and then sombody else sees a mate in 3...

Oct-27-06  ceebo: <al wazir: If 30... Nc6 does anyone see a more incisive continuation for white?> Your second line can be extended to also win the rook (in fact after 32...Kxc7 it is mate in 13):

30... Nc6 31. Bxa6+ Kd7 32. dxc7+ Kxc7 33. Rb7+ Kc8 34. Re7+ Kb8 35. Rb3+ Ka8 36. Bb7+ Kb8 37. Bxc6+ Kc8 38. Bb7+ Kb8 39. Bd5+ Kc8 40. Be6+ Rd7 41. Rxd7

  kevin86: White's mate threats are so strong that black must give up two queens to stop the mate. Even then,black was only successful in staving off the mate, only to be caught later.
Oct-27-06  think: <khense> I also saw 30. c6. It looks much more forcing. The best I can see is: 30. c6 Rdg1 31. Bxa6+ Kd8 32. Rb8+ Nc8 33. Rxc8+ Ke7 34. Rxg8, which leaves White up a bishop.
Oct-27-06  chesslearning: ah... sorry about that.
