Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-26-10  Everett: Stein puts on another two-bishop clinic.

The Nh6 looks doomed but after 29.Nf5! Qxh5+ the power of the bishops will give victory to white. The exchange sac Rxe5 ultimately targets g6. In the final position black must either be mated or lose the queen for a bishop.

Aug-21-12  Alesavio: Why not 25.Rd7? It's seem an instant win to me...(alas, I have no fritz with me!)
Aug-22-12  Alesavio: Alas, maybe 25..Ra1+? But after 26.Bf1 white wins, or not?
Aug-23-12  Alesavio: After say 26...Qxe4 27.Rxg7+!! Kh8 (27...Kf8 28.Bc5+) 28.Rg8+!! Kxg8 29.Nxf6+ and wins. What's wrong?
Aug-23-12  Cyphelium: <Alesalvio> After 25. ♖d7 ♖a1+ 26. ♗f1,

I think you should check out 26.- ♘d4, for example 27. ♖xd4 ♗xe4 28. ♗h6 f5 or 27. ♖xe7 ♘xe2+ 28. ♔g2 ♗xe4+ 29. ♖xe4 ♘c1 or 27. ♗xd4 ♕xe4 28. ♕xe4 ♗xe4 29. ♖xc7 ♗d3 30. ♘e3 ♗h6.

Aug-31-12  Alesavio: Thanx, but why not 27.Nexf6+? If 27...Bxf6 28.Bxd4 Qxe2 29.Nxf6+ Kf8 30.Bc5+ and wins. If 27...Kh8 28.cxd4 Qf8 29.Bh6!! and wins.
Sep-02-12  Alesavio: 22...c4? is probably the losing move. Better 22...cxd4 23.cxd4 b4!? 24.Qb5 and white stands very well, almost winning.
Sep-03-12  Cyphelium: <Alesalvio> Nice mate, I didn't spot it. Exit 26.- ♘d4.
Sep-05-12  Alesavio: So the great mystery about this game remains ...Maybe a scoresheet error?
