Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-20-09  nd792001: Black's 20th move is quite beautiful. It sets up tactical shots on opposite sides of the board -- capture at C3 which can't be recaptured without hanging the H1 rook to check by Qe4.
Nov-30-11  ozmikey: It's a nice trick, but White gets quite a good position after that and even seems to have the advantage for a while...but after 34. h4? (34. Rc7) Ba3! he's suddenly in trouble since 35. Rc7 Rc8! gives Black control of the c-file.
Dec-30-17  fispok: White does not have a good position after the check at e4. For example, after 22. Rxc3 Rxc3 23. Qxc3 Qe4+ 24. Kb2 Qxh1, white can either guard the h pawn with Qc2, or go on the offensive with Qc7, but after 25.Qc7 Qxh2+ 26. K any Qxh6 27.Qxb6 Qxf4 Black is up a rook, and can castle safely as the W queen can not check it to prevent it.
