Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-18-06  notyetagm: After 23 ... ♔f6 the Black f7-pawn is the only Black piece which is stopping a crushing attack on e6 by the White e1-rook and g4-queen.

So White (Chandler) <REMOVES THE GUARD> with the crushing blow 24 ♖xf7+!, destroying this critical defender of the e6-square. Black has only two ways to get out of check but they both lead to a quick mate:

24 ... ♔xf7 25 ♕xe6#
24 ... ♖xf7 25 ♖xe6#

A great example of the principle that to make your attack succeed you need to get rid of the opponent's main defensive piece, whatever the material cost. <You simply must get rid of the defender that is stopping your breakthrough!> Here White gives up a rook to destroy the Black f7-pawn defender of the critical e6-square and is rewarded with a quick mate.

Apr-18-06  notyetagm: 24 ♖xf7+! is another great example of the <Three Piece Rule>.

White has three pieces in the attack on the Black king: d7- and e1-rooks and the g4-queen. White sacrifices his d7-rook in order to give mate with his other two attacking pieces.
