Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-04-03  dinxy: The sequence of moves that set up 26.Be7! are very nice. 24. Rxe6!, 25.Rd8!! Excellent tactics.
Sep-01-04  blunderprone: Admittedly, I don't have the advantage of a strong chess program like Fritz, but after about 20 min. of OTB analysis, white's immediate threats seem to fizzle out after 25...Bb7. Crafty?
Sep-01-04  acirce: <blunderprone> 25..Bb7 is met by the very same move as in the game, 26.Be7 and mate in a few moves.
Sep-01-04  blunderprone: hence my name...sigh.
