|Jan-13-18|| ||morfishine: I don't know whats more impressive: White's vicious attack or Black's desperate and brilliant squirming for survival|

|Jan-13-18|| ||GrahamClayton: Fantastic attacking play by Commons - he realised that the Black pieces were in such a tangle that he would have time to make the rook lift via f3 and h3.|
|Apr-07-18|| ||al wazir: I got the first three moves, but Commons must have seen the whole ten-move combination in advance.|

|Apr-07-18|| ||Mayankk: I had the 27 Ng8 Ke8 idea although I was still wondering if it is necessary to add another piece to the Attack. The fact that Ke8 seemed the only reasonable reply after it, since Kd7 loses a Rook made this an easy choice.|
Lots of complex sidelines and I couldn’t think much beyond Qxe6+, where Black has 3 pieces to interpose in between. As it turns out, it was all in the vain as d5 and a firing Bishop was indeed necessary...
|Apr-07-18|| ||Whitehat1963: What happens if 27. Qxf5?|
|Apr-07-18|| ||landshark: I found the first move 27.d5, cxd5, and chose 28. Qxf5 with many amazing possibilities but which all seem to still favor White. I wonder how well it would hold up to serious scrutiny - ?|
|Apr-07-18|| ||landshark: One line being 28. Qxf5 Rxh7 29. Qxh7+ Rf7 30. Ng8+ Kf8 31. Qh6+, where Black cannot take the N on g8 because of Qh8#. And that's just the starting point...|

|Apr-07-18|| ||agb2002: White has three pawns for a bishop.
Black threatens Qxb2.
The first idea that came to mind was 27.Qxf5 exf5 28.Re3+ Kxf6 29.d5+ Qxb2 30.Re6#. However, Black can play 29... Kg6.
This suggests 27.d5. For example, 27... Qxb2 28.dxe6 Kxe6 29.Re3+ Nxe3 30.Qe4+ Kxf6 31.Rh6+ Kg7 32.Qg6#. I haven't found the time for more.
