Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-23-06  Jafar219: Very good game by Peter Lukacs!
Aug-02-08  arsen387: excellent play by whites. It perfectly shows why you shouldn't grab a pawn when you are behind in development. After 16.d5 if that pawn is taken with any piece then Rh4 traps the Q.

19.e6!! is the star move I think. By sacrificing merely a pawn whites open the diagonal for his B and cuts off the black Q from Kside defense. The rest is easy as white's Q, 2 Rs, B and N are all targeted on black K and the end is near.

If after 26.Rxh6 black will try to win a piece with 26..Qxb5? then 27.Qe5+ Be6 28.Rxe6! fxe6 29.Rg7! mates in a few moves.

And in the end 35.Qf4+ Kc6 36.Qe5 wins also the pinned B, so blacks resign. This is a really beautiful game by Lukacs
