stacase: 26. Bh6 is so obvious, <See a good move look for a better one.> Didn't see one because the first one was best. Black doesn't have much choice other than opening up his castled King. And then White can have a field day.

stacase: Black threatens mate and White can't say check. So, does 39, Rxg3 work? Yes it does (-: Black takes Rook White advances Pawn and then Blocks with the Knight or it covers c8. Either way, White can't stop the Pawn and resigns.

stacase: Black's Knight must cover g5 so 28. Rg3+ is free and wins.

stacase: <ChessHigherCat: It's always better to sacrifice the opponent's queen :-)> First chuckle of the day.

stacase: Spent oodles of time trying to find a way to dislodge White's Bishop so Black's Queen could occupy h3 safely. Finally 24....Nxf2 opens up the south east corner of the board no matter how Black decides to respond. White's response 26.Nd4 is mystifying at best as it's a romp for ...

stacase: <ChessHigherCat: Good example of "find a good move, look for a better one". QxN was too obvious ...> When I was a kid my brother drilled it into me that the object of the game was to checkmate the other guy's King, not take all his pieces.

stacase: Too easy for Wednesday.
 
   Apr-04-17 M Orfali vs M Senlle Caride, 2007 (replies)
 
stacase: Once you see that if Black's King were to be forced to e2 White's Bishop can grab the Knight and say check while uncovering an attack on Black's Queen the next thought is "Oh look at that!" Boom! 23...Re2+ and White is up a Queen and two Pawns against a Rook. A won game if ever ...

stacase: Monday Rule #1 check out the Queen sacrifice. Rule #2 see rule #1.
