Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-13-04  chess man: It's either checkmate or lose the knight.
Dec-13-04  solstys: It looks like it's just checkmate. If the king moves to g8, f7+ leads to mate.
Dec-14-04  chess man: No.<solstys> but in a way you are right. f7+ Kg7 and he escapes checkmate but the pawn will be queened.
May-24-05  Ingermanlander: Magnificent interaction of forces!

  Phony Benoni: <solstys> is right. It's mate in four after 52...Kg8 by 53.f7+ Kg7 54.Rg3+, and any Black response allows 55.f8Q and mate next move
