Jul-08-07  alexandrovm: nice tactics by Ivanchuk, Alexander was unaware that the white bishop was controlling the d1 square? of course not, but he has seen "too late" Be6+ (or Kd2), winning the rook...and the game
Jul-08-07  notyetagm: 46 ♖f4x♗g4+! ♔g5x♖g4 is a nice example of the <REMOVE THE GUARD> tactic by <ILLUSORY PROTECTION>: the Black g4-king cannot prevent the White d6-passed pawn from advancing to the d7-square like the Black g4-bishop did.

Don't send the king to do a bishop's work! :-)
