Feb-10-12  APatzer: Qh8 - is that white's next move ?
Feb-10-12  syracrophy: <APatzer> Yes, that is it. White threatens ♕h8+ and ♕e8# and if black tries 28...♔e7 29.♕xg7 and a strong discovered check is coming

  Gilmoy: Or 28..Qd8 29.Qh8+ Ke7 30.Nd5++ <a startling configuration: maybe once in a century> Kd7 31.Qxd8#

Style points for <unsacking your opponent's> Rook (by not taking it)

  sleepyirv: I feel awkward questioning GMs with my fuzzy little mind but Black allowing White to strip away his kingside pawns is just bad, right? White has too many attacking chances for Black to trade down/move his king to safety.

  drukenknight: wow those are some mates, above. I am not enamored w/ 12...OO; I dont like to 00 just to do it but rather find something it accomplishes (well it does connect R, but still have problem with Q) Ive played this semi slav a few times now and I get worried when Q is still looking to get out, that and getting crushed by pawn roller..

  drukenknight: again on the OO issue, you castle king side and you just invite an attack because your k side pawns have already made two moves, white hasnt done anything. Plus connecting Rooks not really an issue until there's open files, obviously white should be trying to open files at this pt..

  drukenknight: and not 15 ...Bc4+ ? THat's like automatic for 15 year olds on the internet. No joke...
