|Sep-05-13|| ||JohnBoy: 21.f5 is a sweet move, totally separating the black king from his heavy support.|
|Sep-05-13|| ||lentil: 25. Qxg5!! (...fg 26. Rh8+! Bxh8 27. Rxh8#). Beautiful!|
|Sep-05-13|| ||kevin86: The finish was similar to Marshall's pipe game victory over Amos Burn.|
|Sep-05-13|| ||Ratt Boy: Very nice.
Hasenfuss must have had a lucky rabbit's foot to get these combinations.

Yep. In both games, the king bishop was pinned, and a rook was coming to h8.

|Sep-05-13|| ||Check It Out: Agree with <tga> and <lentil>, 25.Qxg5 is a beautiful move.|
|Sep-05-13|| ||pericles of athens: Wow - black's Queen, Queen Rook, and Queenside pawns are total spectators. Usually in the Sicilian Dragon, Black pushes the Q-side pieces aggressively. Everything here happens on the Kingside, with White throwing everything at it.|
|Sep-05-13|| ||Moszkowski012273: 26.Rh8+ is much stronger|
|Sep-07-13|| ||JohnBoy: <Moszkowski012273: 26.Rh8+ is much stronger> How do you figure? Support your claim.|
|Sep-07-13|| ||Moszkowski012273: The rook is untouchable because of the mate threat via f6. So after 26.Kf7 (forced) 27.fxg6+, Nxg6 28.Qxd5+ is absolutely crushing.|
