  zydeco: Amazing combination: mate in 8 with 35.Rd8+! Even more impressive is the idea with 24.Be7 (after refraining from developing the bishop for 24 moves) to cut off defense of f7.
Apr-23-12  vovan47: So, mate is:
37.♖e8+ ♔c7 38.♖e7+ ♔d6 39.♖d7+ ♔e6 40.♕d5+ ♔f6 41.♖xf7+ ♔g6 42.♕f5# How the hell he managed to calculate it?

  zydeco: I don't get 26.b4 -- handing black a passed pawn and delaying the attack. Is it so important to keep the black knight off c5?
May-29-13  Nerwal: <I don't get 26.b4 -- handing black a passed pawn and delaying the attack. Is it so important to keep the black knight off c5?>c5 is certainly important as a whole, and not only for the black knight : for instance 26. ♘xg6 ♖c5 is dubious for white.
