this is chess, 25.♗h5! by Mickey!

Jul-07-14  Bowen Island: Another example of "Pawn Play" is given here in this Rapid Game from Cannes.

12 f5! is better than g4 g5.

Hellsten prefers 18 Nxc6 Nxc6; 19 h5 b4; 20. Rdf1 planning 21 hg6 fg6; 21 f7+

Nov-19-15  Balmo: I just can't see what's wrong with 10...Qxb2. Does anyone fancy helping me out? Thanks!
Nov-19-15  siggemannen: Balmo: perhaps 11. Bc1! and if 11...Qxa2? 12. Nb3 traps the queen.

11... Qb6 looks better in the line though, i can't find any immediate refutation

Nov-19-15  jvv: I suggest 11.Kd2.
