Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-22-06  Whitehat1963: No way you can guess the moves after 16...Kf8. I wonder if a computer can do it! Remarkable finish, but I also wonder if black had some resources.

  Phony Benoni: 18.Qh6+ is pretty, but part of a familiar sacrificial pattern. It would not be that difficult a move to find, especially in a correspondence game where White would have had a couple of days to work it out.
Nov-22-06  Whitehat1963: Still makes for an excellent puzzle after 17...Kxg7.
Aug-07-12  DanielBryant: Are we sure Wayne's first name wasn't Bruce?
Jan-14-14  firebrandx: Move 10.Bh3 was actually a mistake. Keith's last chance there was 10...Nd6! and white's attack completely fizzles. For the record, black was totally lost for the rest of the game

Mar-08-21  RandomVisitor: <Whitehat1963>< Remarkable finish, but I also wonder if black had some resources.>considering that this was a correspondence game, and that the Mephisto computer was available in 1990, along with GNUchess, what more resources do you need...?

After the suggested improvement 10...Nd6:
