  nezhmet: The queen and two knights attacking position is very confusing!

Ljubo missed a mate in 5 with 22. Ne8+!.
If 22. Ne8+! Kh6, 23. Qg5 is mate right away so 22. Ne8+ Kf8. Then 23. Qc5+! is the nice point. If 23...Kxe8 24. Nf6 is mate. So 23. Qc5+! Kg8 and then 24. Nef6+ Kh8 25. Qf8 mate. Ljubo's move, winning the queen (at least) by force, was of course good enough.

Sep-29-12  atragon: Ljubo missed a mate but before Alburt missed a draw: 18. ... Kg7 is a blunder. Kh8 leads to a draw.
