  perfidious: The black king's stroll to f6 with all the heavy pieces on the board is amusing indeed, and the final overloading combination is simple, yet elegant.

  ToTheDeath: Agreed, but the real hero of the game was the steed on e5. It hardly moved the whole time but its presence was always felt and once it moved the game was over.

It hardly moved the whole time but its presence was always felt and once it moved the game was over.> The f4 pawn ended up being pretty important too. It hovered threateningly over the kingside, allowed the e3 infiltration, and helped to deliver the final blow.
