Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-11-11  cocker: This game contains a clever combination, starting on move 21. After 21 Qf5, Black cannot take the queen (because of mate) or the rook (loses queen). If 21 ... Qd8 or 21 ... Qc8 White follows up with 22 Re7, giving an immediate win. Another try, 21 ... Qa4 is answered by 22 b3 simply. Black found the best reply, 21 ... Re6, but this loses the exchange and Black evidently felt that his position was hopeless. Would make a good middle-of-week POTD!
