stacase: Black's h5 Knight was unhelpful, so I figured it was 25.Rxh5 the rest didn't play itself.

stacase: The mating threat is Rh8# supported by White's a1 Bishop. 27.Rxe8+ and White wins the Knight while Black's Queen defends against mate

stacase: When you look at the final position 23...Nxc2# it reminds me of a post turtle - how did that happen?

stacase: Queen sacrifice Monday, and everything is right with the world.

stacase: 19.e6 cracks the egg. I wouldn't say the rest plays itself but it's pretty straight forward. I liked the pinned Bishop moves 25-29.

stacase: The first thought, 23.Bxf6+ to take care of the Rook's attack on the Bishop turns out to be the move. It took way too long to see that it set up the discovered attack on Black's Rook & check 24.Ne4+ winning the Rook for a Knight. The rest comes under the heading of one of those ...

stacase: Take the Bishop, take the Knight, fork the King & Queen. Results: Queens off the board and a Rook for a Bishop, Knight & Pawn. Pretty good deal, turns an ugly fight with a Rook against a Knight & Bishop into a one Pawn up slight advantage. I usually miss these tricky knight fork ...

stacase: 28...Rxg2+ was screaming to be played. The rest was a mop up operation.
