Position after 12 ... g7-g6? 13 ♖h1xh7!

Seirawan's 13 ♖h1xh7! must have been a very unpleasant surprise for Black.

Seirawan's petite combinaison is made possible by the <UNDEFENDED> Black e6-bishop.

Mar-10-08  notyetagm: This is simply a beautiful <PETITE COMBINAISON> by Seirawan.
Aug-30-08  ravel5184: Call me a patzer, but I don't see what happens after 13 ... Kxh7.

Aug-30-08  LivBlockade: I wonder why White played 14. Rh1 - wouldn't 14. Rh2 have saved a tempo?
