  Eyal: A spectacular attacking game by Fedorchuk, who after 17...Qxa1 is temporarily a rook+knight down.

  sbevan: I agree <Eyal: A spectacular attacking game by Fedorchuk, who after 17...Qxa1 is temporarily a rook+knight down.>. I had to think for a minute about 29 h4.
Beautiful quiet move.
It leaves no good square for the Queen.

After 32 Re4 there's a line of the Bard's "...doth his quietus make.." Can't remember what play but it seems to capture the mood.

  scutigera: <Sbevan>: Hamlet, Act III, scene 1, line 76: "For who would bear the whips and scorns of time, [and other unbearable things], When he himself might his quietus make / With a bare bodkin?" Not sure how well it applies here, as I don't see any blunders by Black (though his central pawn strategy appears to have been optimistic), but it's a nice speech anyway, and it also gave us "..that the dread of something after death, / The undiscovered country from whose bourn / No traveler returns.." Of course, he's delivering this to Ophelia, whom he then tells that he never loved her and that she should go away and be a nun.
