  fredthebear: Fun clash of intermediates here. With 26...Qc5 Black sought to avoid an exchange of queens and lost a tempo. Black is down two pawns and the exchange, but has slight hopes of hooking up a battery on the queenside. White then powered up the middle after an exchange sacrifice.

The in-your-face shock of 30.Qf7! packs a psychological punch, as the unprotected Black rook cannot stay put nor accept the queen sacrifice. In the final position, Black could have played on with 30...Rg8, knowing that White's back rank is also weak if the loose White rook leaves it. Thereafter, both sides will be delayed in fully coordinating their pieces in an offensive fashion.

Black had enough, but this is the kind of position that an amateur should not resign yet. White will have difficulty adding more piece pressure on the corner (after 30...Rg8). The Black queen can be a game changer with so many pawns removed. Just because the opponent has had the initiative much of the game does not mean s/he won't eventually step on a land mine. FTB says play another 5-10 moves and see if White stumbles.

For example, after 30...Rg8, the White rook is hanging. The overaggressive 31.Re8 threatens checkmate, but it allows Black to give a series of checks beginning with 31...Qg1+ and the possibility of perpetual checking exists. (A draw sure beats resignation!) Don't give the opponent full credit for having the ability to find all the correct upcoming moves -- make 'em prove it on the board.
