Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-18-07  Paulvandyk: In the final position the threat is 28 Qc7# If A) 27 ... Kd7 or Kd8, 28 Qc7# If B) 27 ... Qe7, 28 Qb8+ Kd7 29 Qc7# If C) 27 ... Re7, 28 Qb8+ Kd7 29 Qc7+ Ke8 30 Qc8#

In light of these variations, the only way to avoid mate appears to be D) 27 ... Re1+ 28 Rxe1 Qxe1+ (28 ... Kd7 or Kd8 29 Qc7#)29 Bxe1 and black is down a queen for the exchange

Going back a few moves, this sequence isn't quite possible after black's 24th move (ie 25 Rxb5? cxb5 26 Qf4 because of black's reply 26 ... Qe3+ forcing the trade of queens and leaving black an exchange ahead; this defensive resource isn't possible after 26 ... Qxb4

Finally, in addition to giving black the chance to make the mistake he did, 25 d5 threatens the possible finish 26 dxc6 bxc6 27 Rxb5 cxb5 (27 .. Qe3+ 28 Qxe3 Rxe3 29 Rc5 and white is up a piece) 28 Qc6+ Kd8 29 Rd1+ Qd7 30 Qxd7#

Aug-23-19  qtl673: Pillsbury was badly outplayed in the middlegame (between moves 11 and 20) and black had a solid advantage. 20...g4 would have been strong (21.Qd1 Rh5). 22...Nd6 is not great and 25...Nd4 is an outright blunder.
