Aug-29-05  chess man: On 18...Kxh7?? Re3 with the treat of Rh3++(which there's no way to stop except through giving up the Queen). Black is trapped. A good example of using the Bishop to rip open Black's extremely weak kingside. Good game.

PS. Firstly, good post by <chess man>! Secondly, two notes from Stockfish on this game:

A) Black's first major mistake was going in for 15...Rfd8? < >. 15...Qc6! was essentially his only move, <+0.04/25>.

B) 17...Kf8 and 17...Kh8 are essentially of the same value to Black, and are both met by 18. Bxh7 < >.

  Mateo: 15...Rfd8!? was interesting. Black loses a pawn but the White Bishop cannot go back after ...f5. The real mistake was 21...Kf8? (21...Kf6 was much better). Maybe Kostic missed the nice 24.Bg8! (24...Rxg8? 25.Qxf7+ Kd6 26.Qc7 mate).
