Apr-21-06  goldenbear: And what if 24.Rd2 25.Qc1 Rxb2?
Apr-21-06  goldenbear: Oh I see. 26.Rg1 and there is no defense which saves the rook and prevents Qg5, winning. fxe5 is brilliant.

  keypusher: 24....Rd2 25. Qc1 Rxb2 26.Ne7+ Kh8 27.fxg7+ Kxg7 28.Qg5+ Kh8 29.Qf6#, I think.

24....Rd2 is such a good-looking move, maybe it led Koblents astray when he was calculating around move 21.

  Mateo: 24...Rd2? 25.Ne7+ Kh8 26.fxg7+ Kxg7 27.Nd5+, White has an easy win.
