Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-20-04  percyblakeney: Nice finish by Blackburne! 18. Qxf6 is followed by Nf4+ 19. Kg1 Nh3/Ne2#. 18. Kg1 doesn't help because of the same Nf4.
Jul-20-04  misguidedaggression: don't forget, 18.Qd3 is met by Ne3+ 19.Kg1 Qg5# although Ne1+ 19.Qxf3 Qxf3+ 20.Kg1 Qg2# looks nicer.

Also, 18.h3/h4 is met by Ne3+ 19.Kh2 Qf4+ 20.Kg1 Qg5/Qg4+ 21.Kh2 Qg2#

18.Rg1 seems to hold, but Ne1+! 19.Rg2 Bxg2+ Kg1 20.Nf3+ wins the queen.

Jul-20-04  misguidedaggression: Almost forgot, all the other f-rook moves (i.e. 18.Rfe1) lose to 18...Ne3+ blocking off the f1 square so 19.Kg1 Qg5 is mate.
