   Oct-17-17 Zsofia Polgar vs S Kamberi, 1996 (replies)
mriddle: One line I looked at that I haven't seen mentioned yet: 34. Qxh7+ Kxh7 35. Rh1+ Bh6 36. Rxh6+ Kg7 37. Reh1 Rh8 38, Rxh8 Bg6 After which white could trade rooks with 39. Rxd8 and then take the bishop 40. fxg6. This would leave white with B+B+N+R vs Q, which is probably ...

mriddle: How does white win here in the final position? Close to a checkmate, but I can't figure out how to finish it. Best I can find is: 38... c2, 39 Kb6 Rb8+, 40 Bxb8 c1=Q, 41 Bd6 Qg1+, 42 Bc5 Qxh2, 43 Re8+ Qb8 44 Rxb8 Kxb8 45 Kxa5 b3 46 Bd4 ... leaving them even in material, and my ...

mriddle: Sorry, I though of one more thing: if black plays: 29. Nc6 bxc6 30. Qxa6+ Kb8 31. Qxa2 Qg5 32. f3 Rd8, doesn't this prevent the mate by either forcing a trade, or forcing the Rook off the d file early, allowing the king to escape. Or am I missing something, as usual?

mriddle: oh, never mind, I guess all black has to do is 31... Qh6+ and then 32... Qf8
   Sep-28-16 Koltanowski vs M Defosse, 1936 (replies)
mriddle: I got as far as: 22. Bxh7+ Kxh7 23. Qh5+ Kg8 24. Bxg7 Kxg7 25 Qg5+ Kh8 (instead of Kh7) 26. Rd4 but then what about 26... c6? If 27. Rh4+ Qh7 28. Rxh7+ Kxh7 I don't see a clear win for white yet (Q+2P for R+2B). White can also try 26. Qf6+ but then Kg8 27. Rd4 Be5 28. Qg5+ Bg7 ...
   Aug-16-16 D Orzech vs N Popova, 2009 (replies)
mriddle: <YetAnotherAmateur> Can white at least delay mate in this line by playing 27. Rxf3? then for example 27...Bxf3 Qb1 28. Bc3+ Kf1 Of course it doesn't really matter, it's hopeless for white in all of these lines, but fun to see if there really is a forced mate or not

mriddle: <EhsanBalani> Thanks, that helps

mriddle: why did white resign here?
   Jun-13-15 Kasparov vs Van Wely, 2000 (replies)
mriddle: Certainly didn't get the puzzle, but after looking at the answer I put my effort into figuring out how white wins after 22 ...Kxe6. I came up with: 23. Bxd5+ Bxd5 24. Qg6+ Nf6 25. Qxf6+ Kd7 26. Rxd5+ Qxd5+ 27. Nb6+ winning the queen as the main line. Is that it?
   May-08-12 Steinitz vs Chigorin, 1892 (replies)
mriddle: It took a while, but I finally found the mating line with 26.Bh6+, after trying and failing to find one with 26.Qh6+. It was interesting to see Amarande's comment above that there is a very similar mating line with Qh6+: 24.Rxh7+ Kxh7 25.Qh1+ Kg7 26.Qh6+ Kf6 27.Qh4+ Ke5 28.Qxd4+ Kf5
