Oct-14-05  Saruman: 24.-Kh8 25.Qh6+ Kg8 26.Qxg7#. Other moves than 24.-Kh8 are followed by Qxg7#.
Sep-09-14  waustad: This is a very elegant attack. I love the way he coordinates his minor pieces.
Dec-22-15  yureesystem: Masterful and aesthetically pleasing attack by Tarrasch. I am sure he would beat Steinitz for world champion but he better things to do, like being a doctor, very noble. :)
May-05-18  jeta: Black's fatal move was 12...exf5 vacating the e6 square, which allowed the time-gaining 13.Bc4 and 14.Kd5, etc. Instead, 12...Nh4! forking the Rook and f5 pawn (now attcked 2x) gives Black a playable game.
