Jul-26-05  Kangaroo: Very elegant and simple: if <27 ... Rg8> [what else?] then <28. Bf8> followed by <29. Bg7+> and mate is next.
Jul-26-05  abcpokerboy: <Kangaroo>, what if 28.Bf8 Qxf6?
Jul-26-05  abcpokerboy: Maybe 27...Rg8 followed by 28.Rd4 threatening Rh4 looks like a winner, but I am a lousy patzer just grasping at straws.
Jul-26-05  Kangaroo: <abcpokerboy: <Kangaroo>, what if 28.Bf8 Qxf6?>

I overlooked such a simple move! Yes, <28. Rd4> is much stronger!

The threat then is not only <29. Rh4> but also <29. Qxh7+> followed by <30. Rh4#>

Dec-23-05  aw1988: I assume you all mean Re4.
Dec-23-05  Kangaroo: YES! If <27 ... Rg8> then <28. Re4> is the best.
Dec-23-05  setebos: After Panno played his 10th move I could not understand the rest of his moves.
Jun-16-06  Chicago Chess Man: If 27 ... Rg8, 28. Re4 g5 29. Bf5 wins
Jan-12-09  PAWNTOEFOUR: after 1.2 million nodes,crafty came up with this...pv 27...Rg8 28.Re4 Qxf6 29.Bxf6+ Rxf6 30.Qg5 Kg7 31.Rh4 Rh8 32.Qh6+ Kg8 33.Rd2 c4 34.Qg5 Kg7 35.Bg2 +532 Crafty
Mar-18-11  Sem: Perhaps Black should have played 25. ... e5, threatening Bxf6.
