May-24-04  Cyphelium: Perhaps black got hypnotized by the mate on e7? If, for example, 20. Bxd3 Qxb2+ 21. Kd2 c4??, then 22. Qf8+ Rxf8 23. Ne7 mate. Otherwise it is hard to explain why he resigned; instead 21.- Bxf5 and white cannot take the bishop because of 22. exf5 Bc3 mate. Also, after 20. Rxd3 Qxb2+ 21. Kd2 Bc3+ 22. Ke3 Bxf5 everything seems to be in order for black.
Jun-01-04  GrillBritt: I think the move that made him resign was 20. Kd2!
No checks. the queen and knight is attacked and the mate is still threatened.
Jun-01-04  notsodeepthought: I agree that 20 Kd2 is better than 20 B:d3, but does white retain the extra piece after 20 ... Qd8 ? If on move 21 white takes in d3, black takes the white knight on f5.

  FSR: After 20.Kd2! (only move) Qd8!, Stockfish 12 assesses the position as 0.00. Maybe Dzindzi only saw 20...Qxb2?? 21.Qf8+! Rxf8 22.Ne7#. Holy hallucination, Batman!
