Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-23-05  halcyonteam: deadly G-file, especially in Grob, since white opens it up with 1st move.
Jan-10-16  zxvasdf: 21. Bh3 instead? Leading to ... Kh8 22. Bxe6. From there, if the pawn goes in for the kill it's the knight's smothered mate. If black chooses to open an airhole with the h7 pawn, white takes rook and if white chooses to defend with Rf8, that rook is eventually captured by Be6 in a profitable exchange of material.
