Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-14-12  backrank: The most remarkable fact about this game is that Black can happily advance the pawns in front of his king; although they leave a lot of weak squares behind and don't seem to have much support by pieces, and in spite of the fact that White's pieces look fully developed, White is by no means able to take any advantage of the 'naked' position of the black king. However, by tactical means White seems to stay in the game, and after 27. Qxh4, at first sight the position looks by no means clear. But then the nice hammer blow Bxf2! (Rxf2 Qe1+) suddenly ends the struggle. In the final position, the white queen must not leave the h-file because of mate on that file, and Qh2 leads to mate as well (Qxh2 Kxh2 Rh6#).
