Aug-11-19  hcgflynn: After 29. Rxb3 it is a sure win for black. I guess Rapport blundered some moves.

  catlover: Wow...what a game.

It is hard to believe that someone who is down a Queen for a minor piece could actually win the game.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Two pieces defeat a Queen. Amazing to see that outside of an endgame composition. Then again, when you have three connected passed pawns providing an assist--still amazing, but perhaps not surprising.

<An Englishman>, Having the Black rooks stuck on g8 and h8 and not doing much certainly helped MVL - did he envisage the Q sacrifice after capturing the e6 pawn?

Aug-12-19  paavoh: I think that 30.- Nxa4 was one critical mistake, losing the only pawn that held the White center pawns back. Black did try to push his g & h pawns to gain some counterplay. In hindsight, he could have relocated his Rooks e.g. Rg8-g7-c7 and Rh8-f8 and only then decided on his Kingside pawns.
