  Sokrates: 34 Nd3 is a wonderful move emphasizing Hou's dynamic and ingenious attack in this game. Moreover, her last two opponents had the most difficult names to pronounce! :-)
Sep-28-17  Nerwal: Is the score correct ? 36... ♖h8 looks strange in that move order.

  beenthere240: What else? Actually if 37 Qxh8, black might get off the hook.

Where is the mate after say 36... ♕d6 ?
