  whiteshark: 17.Qe4+! solves it. Maybe black resigned a bit too early.

Jan-02-17  ozmikey: After 19. Kd2 I was wondering where the tactic was after 19...Bxe3+ 20. Qxe3 Nxf7, and suddenly I realised it wasn't a tactic, it was just a simple threat: 21. Rae1!, when bizarrely (because the Black queen and bishop are stuck in their "attacking" roles on the king-side) Black can do nothing about 22. Qe7+ (21...Kg8? 22. Qe8+!). At best he could grovel on for a while by 21...h6, avoiding the immediate mate, but it's still a dead loss. Nicely played by Timman against his old pal.

  Dionysius1: Nice. I like those quiet attacking moves (no check, no sacrifice) where the opponent just has to wait for the axe to fall.
