Apr-28-05  Mate Hunter: Why didn't black play 19...Kxf7?
Apr-28-05  Shams: <Mate Hunter> black's light squares are too crippled. 20.Qb3+ and the threat of 21.Bg6 would force black to bring his king out to f6. I don't see a forced mate from there but it would only be a matter of time.
Apr-28-05  mr. nice guy: Hmmm, Darko playing black? There's gotta be a pun out there.
