Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-08-06  Fast Gun: Neat finale from Short, move 38 is a classic decoying move that also overloads the black Queen, for example: 38. Qxe5+ Qxe5
39. Rxf8+ Rxf8
40. Rxf8 Mate

38. Qxe5+ Kg8
39. Rxf8+ Rxf8
40. Rxf8+ Kxf8
41. Qxd4
A good clean example of the execution of chess tactics:

  Benzol: Nice game from Nigel and if I'm not mistaken he was only 14 at the time and gained the IM title in the process at this tourney.

  perfidious: <Benzol> Indeed he did; IIRC from the games collection written by his father, the following game was the clincher (after adjournment).
