Nov-17-04  Reisswolf: What a beautiful little tactical sequence to win a piece! I could not help but smile when I played through this game.

Aug-19-06  notyetagm: What an incredible sequence of piece play by Sultan Khan beginning on move 14.

19 ♖e6x♘f6! is a great example of the <RELOADER> theme, that one defender (Black g7-pawn) cannot keep out two attackers (White e6-rook and g5-queen).

White will recapture on f6 (<RELOAD>) with his queen if his f6-rook is captured by the Black g7-pawn. That is, 19 ... gxf6?? 20 ♕xf6+ ♔g8 21 ♘h6+ and Black must give up his queen to escape the <Blackburne's Other Mate> mating pattern.

Yet another example of a <RELOADING> square, here the f6-square, being lined up with the king (Black h8-king).

Aug-19-06  vizir: exellent mat attacking
Aug-20-06  Chess Lou Zer: Good puzzle after 15...Bg4.

  Tabanus: The black player here is Olaf M. Olsen, Norwegian Champion 1930. He later changed his name to Olaf Barda.
