zb2cr: 33. Rh5+, Kx5; 34. Rxh7#. All forced, so it's simple to see, once you start looking.

zb2cr: It looks like 22. ... Nd4. And then whichever way White captures, ... e6 will collect the Queen.
   Oct-08-19 I Denisov vs R Skomorokhin, 2009 (replies)
zb2cr: Taking advantage of the pin, 37. ... Rxc2. If 38. Kxc2, Qxd3+; 39. Kc1, Bd2+; 40. Kd1, Be3+; 41. Ke1, Qd2#. (<charlesdecharemboul>'s line also works.) Either of White's tries, 38. Rf3 or 38. Qxe4, fail as the Knight simply captures and leaves White with the same problem set as ...
   Oct-07-19 Tal vs P Mejic, 1974 (replies)
zb2cr: The Rook is overworked: it's tied to the Black back rank to prevent mate. Therefore 24. Rxd6 simply wins a piece.

zb2cr: And a fine tribute to the deceased co-founder of <>.
   Sep-24-19 J van den Bosch vs Euwe, 1936 (replies)
zb2cr: Black wins a piece with 16. ... Rxd4; 17. Rxd4, Qb6.
   Sep-23-19 Anand vs Van Wely, 1998 (replies)
zb2cr: I remember seeing this game before, so no credit, because I just remembered the surprising move 35. Bxg6.
   Sep-16-19 C Coppola vs B Macias Murillo, 2009 (replies)
zb2cr: STILL not right. If it's Black's 34th move, the home page diagram should have the White Bishop on g6. To be sure, the diagram on this page does have the Bishop positioned correctly.

zb2cr: 28. Nd6 with fork seems to do the job.
