Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-08-08  RookFile: Stahlberg wisely chooses a variation of the Nimzo in which he does not get the doubled pawns, and pulverises black with an attack on the kingside.
Feb-01-12  RookFile: White's play on the a1/h8 diagonal is breath taking in this game.

31.Rf6+ wins, of course. But (just because it's so pretty), SF notes that White also had 31.Qg7+ Ke8 32.Re6+! dxe6 33.Qxc7 and both rooks are hanging.
