  Benzol: An intersting encounter
Sep-12-03  aulero: I doubt that the game score is correct. After 24.♖xf6 Black can simply play 24...♖d1+ 25.♗f1 ♕xh5 winning.

  Benzol: If Rd1+ then Qxd1
As far as I know the game score is correct.

  Benzol: 24. ...c2 might be a better try.
Sep-12-03  aulero: Thanks <Benzol>. A very stupid oversight that forced me to look deeply at the position. Unfortunately 24...c2 allows 25.♗b2 and Black is lost. 24...♖d5 seems the good move.

  Benzol: <aulero> You're right 24. ...c2 is an hallucination. I was looking at 25. Bb2 Qxa2 forgetting about the fact that white can retreat Bf1 after the sequence 26. Rxa2 Rd1+

  Honza Cervenka: 24.Bg5! would be deadly. Of course, 24...Bxg5? 25.Qxg5 leads to quick mate and 24...Qxb5? 25.Bxf6+ is out of consideration as well but black has no satisfactory defence already. After 24...Be5 25.Qh6 he faces threats 26.Rf8+ or 26.Bf6+ which cannot be reasonably prevented and after 24...Bg4 white has simple and crushing 25.Rxg7! Kxg7 26.Qh6+ with mate in few moves.
