  An Englishman: Good Evening: At first I thought Ordonez had blundered with 28...f4, but Black had something spectacular in mind. Quite a finish.

  Mating Net: Bravissimo! Exciting game and a great pun.

Perhaps White could have played 31.Qxg4 Qxg4 32.Kxf2 to alleviate the pressure on the light squares and have some counter play with the Rooks hitting the back rank. Easy to say now, but I'm not seeing any other possibilities for White.

Feb-07-15  shivasuri4: <Mating Net>, 31.Qxg4 loses to 31...Qxh2#.
Feb-07-15  morfishine: At least for me, its always a pleasure to see Black actually win from the Marshall. Nice game!

As for the movie-word-play, this one falls flat since Black is hardly escaping anything. On the contrary, its White's Queen that is chased hither and dither until White's position collapses due to a sharp and simple tactic

*****

Feb-07-15  JohnBoy: 30...Rf2 is a nice twin to today's puzzle. Beautiful destruction of a kings position.
Feb-07-15  goodevans: A couple of white's moves I don't understand:

<Nd2> was bound to happen at some point but I'm pretty sure I'd have played <21.d4> first. I think white has time for this.

Having made <five> consecutive Q moves on the a8-h1 diagonal, why relinquish it with <28.Qb4>?
