  luzhin: Black didn't wait for the double rook sac conclusion: 34...Qg6 (or Qg8) 35.Rxe6 Qxe6 36.Rxb7+ Kxb7 37.Qc7+ Ka8 38.Qa7 mate
May-12-14  vasja: Why not obvious 28...Rxd6?
May-12-14  Nerwal: <Why not obvious 28...Rxd6?> After 28... ♖xd6 29. exd6 ♕xd6 31. ♕f6 Black's pieces are completely tied up. Even worse, the kingside pawns are weak and will soon fall, and the only active try 31... c4 just fails to 32. ♘d4.
May-12-14  310metaltrader: Vasja - if 28 ... Rxd6, then after 29: exd6 qxd6 30 qf6 is too powerful the horsie is pinned, white is going to kill the f pawn or the h pawn and then while white is moving to unpin the horsie by protecting the rook, the g pawn falls as well. It took me about 8 minutes to figure it out, it took rybka a turn past a few plys, so it is obvious to you and me - took me a long time to see what white could do and even the computer chanced at it first.

  perfidious: One might say that after the line proposed by <vasja>, Black is horsie de combat--not that the game continuation offered any solace.

  HeMateMe: brutal. great power play on the open file.
May-12-14  Everett: This game reminds us of the power of the minority attack on the king position.
May-20-14  RookFile: Black had a chance to sneak in 12....Bb4 and another pair of minors comes off. Then maybe you play ....Qd8 and ...Qe7. Looks very solid.
Jul-07-14  Wyatt Gwyon: Beautiful minority attack.
