Apr-03-12  iamdeafzed: White looks to be threatening checkmate with both Bd3# and Bh5# in the final position:

31.) Bd3+; Kxf6
32.) Ne4+, winning the rook

May-18-12  iamdeafzed: Correction: Bd3+ wouldn't actually lead to mate since Bf5 parries it. Although the move would still be winning anyway after Bxf5+, Rxf5, Nxf5, Kxf5 with black being two exchanges up.

Somewhat of a moot point since it's black to play in the final position and I think the line I gave basically demonstrates why black resigned. Nonetheless, it's a testament to how I need to stop being so lazy with my analysis and/or rely on engines more.

  GrahamClayton: Shiyanovsky can't accept the knight sacrifice due to 19...gxf5 20. gxf5 ♗d7 21. ♗h6 and White has the threat of 22. ♖g1+ ♔h8 22. ♗g7+ ♔g8 23. ♗f6+ ♘g6 24. fxg6.
Apr-23-13  ughaibu: Two problems with that line, first, I suspect you mean 22.Rg2 as the rook can be taken by the bishop, if it moves to g1, second, instead of 20...Bd7, black can play Bc8 allowing 21...Nd7 so that the king can move to both f8 and h8.
Feb-13-17  TheBish: Wow, amazing attack with queens off the board.

  perfidious: The Nf5 attacking motif is hardly original per se in other openings, but to see it arising from a Pirc/Modern is new to me, and to execute this in a queenless middlegame with an open centre is extraordinary.
