  wwall: If 16...Qe6, then 17.Nxf6+ gxf6 18.Bxf6 Rfc8 19.Qg3+ Kf8 20.Qg7+ Ke8 21.axb3.

If 17...Qc5, then 18.Nxg7 Bxf1 19.Nf5, threatening 20.Nh6 mate. Not 17...gxf6?? 18.Qg3+ Kh8 19.Qg7 mate.

  offramp: After 15...Bxb3 it seems as if white has only two moves: recapture with the queen or the a-pawn. Stanley shows tremendous imagination in finding a third and, to me, totally unexpected continuation.
Sep-30-13  JimNorCal: This is a candidate for the ultimate "Pac Man" combination, in which each side consumes the other side's pieces and ignores the opponent taking his own.

  offramp: In the game's title, what signifieth the <HCL 34>?
