Dec-25-03  jaime gallegos: if 28. ... gxh6 29. Qxf6+ ! Rxh6 30. Tg8# or 29. ...Kh7 30. Rh6 # (double check with R&B )
Dec-26-03  Catfriend: Also, 29..Bg7 30.R:h6+ Kg8 31.R:Bg7+ R:Rg7 32.Bc4+
Sep-28-04  WMD: 26.Bxh6 would be premature due to 26...gxh6 27.Qxh6+ Nh7 28.Bxh7? Bf4+.

In the final position, 29...gxh6 30.Rxh6+ Bxh6 31.Qxh6+ Nh7 32.Re8+ leads to mate.
