Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-16-04  patzer2: Losing to a back rank trap is 29. Qxb7??
Sep-10-04  wall: Instead of the weak 28.Qe4, perhaps 28.Re7 or 28.Qf3. The losing move is 29.Qxb7. Perhaps 29.Qb4 or 29h3 instead.

After 29...Qxe5! 30.Rxe5?? fails to 30...Rd1+ 31.Re1 Rxe1 mate. And if 30.Ne7+ Kh8 31.Qb4 (to guard the Rook on e1) Qc7 and Black is a rook up.

Jan-07-06  itz2000: 29..Qxb7 30 Rxb7? 30..Rd1#!
Jul-16-09  TheFocus: Opponent's name was Mike.
