Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-15-04  radu stancu: 21.Re7! If the rook is captured with 21...Nxe7 then the e5 square remains undefended and white can play 22.Be5+ Qg7 23.Qxh6# The knight sacrifice at move 18 is a very good example of giving up material in order to open the diagonals towards the opponent's king.

About the moves 29 to 35: black can't play his queen to g7 to protect his king from being checked since white can capture the f5 pawn. He has to either exchange queens after 29.Qf6+ (which would leave white with a very dangerous passed pawn) or wait until the white queen no longer threatens f5. Unfortunately for black this means losing the b pawn instead.
