Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-28-10  Abdooss: Interview with Alexander Khalifman :

Your most memorable game?

''Now I have to talk about missed opportunities after all. I was 20 years old, and several rounds before the end of the USSR Championship (Kiev, 1986) I played a good game and had a simple win against the respected GM Vitaly Valerievich Tseshkovsky. If I had won, I would have moved into first place. Alas, I lost the game, and after that I fell apart at the finish. You would think that was all long ago, but it still bothers me to this day.''

  KWRegan: The missed opportunity was 26.Rh5! and the combination of Rf1 and Qxg6+! is decisive.

Mind you, Black did not have to play 24...fxe5(??); after various moves Black has a sound position.
