  luzhin: Not bad for a 71 year old, even if Black did handle the opening like a 7 year-old.

<20.?>

An absolutely incredible mating combination. White's queen floats in mid-air.

May-27-12  thomastonk: <luzhin: even if Black did handle the opening like a 7 year-old.> The position up to 13.e6 was state of the art, when the game was played, and probably still is (e.g., I Videnova vs V Cmilyte, 2012). 13.. Bc8 and even more 14.. Kf8 are serious mistakes, of course. However, the children in my club cannot play like this, though I am their coach. ;-)

<Phony Benoni: 20.?> Well, when I saw your diagram and your comment, I thought 20.Nf5 N4xd5 21.Nxd5 Nxd5 22.Bc5, but Black can sacrifice its queen and survive a few more moves. Better is 21.Rxg7+ which forces matters. Rellstab's text move 20.Bh6 seems just to waste one move, isn't it?
