  al wazir: 28. Qh6 would have been a quicker way to win. After 28. Qh6 Rbb7 (or 29...Qb7) 29. Bf6, the concentration of force on g7 is overwhelming.

If, e.g., 29...Qe6, then 30. Rg5 Rf7 31. Rh5 Be7 32. Qxh7+.

If 29...Kh8, then 30. Ng6+ Kg8 31. Nxf8 Kxf8 32. Rxg7, etc.

If 28. Qh6 Qb7 29...Ra8 (intending to play 30...Ra7), then 30. Bxg7 Rxg7 (30...Bxg7 31. Qe6+ Rf7 32. Nxf7 Qxf7 33. Rxg7+) 31. Rxg7+ Bxg7 32. Qe6+ Kh8 (32...Kf8 33. Nd7+ Qxd7 34. Qxd7) 33. Nf7+ Kg8 34. Nd6+.

May-27-21  goodevans: <al wazir:> Black can respond to <28.Qh6> with <28...g6> attacking the Q and shifting the focus of defence from g7 to g6.

White is still in the ascendancy after that but the game's <28.Ng4> seems more ruthless and should have brought a quick win had Black not played on ridiculously long when it was obviously hopeless.

Now white's overwhelming attack is subdued and black's defense can fully regroup.

The best way to continue attack is to enter with bishop 28.♗f6, since white's <DEFLECTION> move (27.d5) has cleared the path for invading with bishop to 6th rank:

Black now has no defense to either surrendering through g7 (or losing a6-bishop).
