Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-29-10  mpl: 32. ♕g8 looks great, but - what a pity - 32. ♖f6 was even better, leading to a forced mate (in 13 ;-)).
Aug-30-10  goodevans: I'd like to know how black avoids mate for more than 13 moves after 32 Qg8!

  PhilFeeley: This has to be a puzzle game one day. I would never have thought of 32. Qg8.

As for mate in 13, black loses both rooks and his queen. White emerges with rook and knight against knight. If there's a mate in 13 or less after all that, I'd like to see it.

Aug-31-10  goodevans: <PhilFeeley: ... black loses both rooks and his queen. White emerges with rook and knight against knight. If there's a mate in 13 or less after all that, I'd like to see it.>

Please elaborate as I'm just not able to see what line you're looking at.

Sep-01-10  symsec: I looked at 32 Rg8 instead (But 32 Qg8 is prettier) threatening 33 Qa8. If 32...Rg8 33 Rh7 Kc8 34 Qg8 Qd8 35 Qc4 Kb8 36 Qb5 Qb6 37 Qe8 Qd8 38 Qd8#. If 32...Rh6 33 Qf7 #. Also threatening 33 Rgh8 winning. If 32 Rg8 de 33 Qd8 Kb7 34 Qc8 Ka7 35 Qa8#. If 32... Ne4 33 Qa8!
Sep-01-10  symsec: To goodevans - After 32 Qg8 Rg8 33 Rh7 Rg7!! 34 Rgg7 Kc8 35 Rh8 Qd8
Sep-01-10  goodevans: Thanks, <symsec>. I hadn't considered <33 ... Rg7>.

But what if <35 Nc6>?

Sep-01-10  symsec: Hi! To goodevans - 33...Rg7 is actually wrong. It's supposed to be 32 Qg8 Rg8 33 Rh7 Kc8! 34 Rg8 (No Nc6 here) Qd8.
Oct-18-10  ReikiMaster: 20..e5 looks ok. 32..Qd4 gives black King an escape route but white still wins at least a Rook.

  Phony Benoni: Right up to the very last move I was thinking, "It's an interesting game, but nothing particularly wild or crazy about it."

Then came <32.BOO!>

  Richard Taylor: Cant argue with that! (Qg8!) I had some success with the Chekover...A useful alternative to roll out sometimes.

  offramp: If your roof is on fire it's not really a problem. Fire doesn't spread downwards it spreads upwards.

...at least until the roof caves in.

  kevin86: A great finish! The queen sac is really upsetting!
Oct-31-16  Ironmanth: Smash! "Checkmating the rook". Wonderful finish, thanks for this one...Rauf is certainly a strong GM; I shall be believing that he one day attains the 2700 club as a permanent resident!

The roof will cave up.

Oct-31-16  TrollKing: Qg8! Wow! Sweet.
Oct-31-16  mworld: 31.Rhh6 wow! With that back rank I wouldn't even be thinking about opening that up.
Oct-31-16  scormus: 32 Qg8:O
A bomb!

  morfishine: "Cave-in", "Cave-up", "Cave-down", I never understood all this and don't care to now

One time I "caved" but that was so I could remain in good graces with my former hot girlfriend...
