Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-24-07  Scarecrow: Very nice finish, it could make an ideal puzzle one day. <27...Rxh2?> May be the last mistake of the game as the following moves are forced.

If 28...Kc8 29. Rg8+ Be8 30. Rxe8+ Kd7 31. Qxe7#, or Black has to play ...Qd8 at some point and lose the Queen.

If 28...Kd8 29. Qxe7+ (Kc8 30. Qxc7+ Kb8 31. Qxb7#) Kc7 30. Qxd7+ (Kb8 31. Qxb7#) Kb6 31. Qxb7#

If 29...Ka6 30. Bxb7#, 29...Qb4 or Qb5 loses the Queen, 29...Rb2 the Rook.

Actually, if my engine is right, 29...Rb2 delays the mate the longest, with the continuation 30. Rxb2 Nb3 31. Rxb3+ and mate is still 7 moves away.

If 29...Nb5, then 30. Rg6+ wins like it does in the actual game. 30...e6 doesn't matter because 31. Rxe6+ rolls on and if Bishop or Knight takes e6 then Qd6 mate. The best is to move the Bishop or Knight to c6 and then 31. Rxc6+! bxc6 32. Qb8+ Ka6 33. Qc8+ Kb6 34. Qxc6#.
