Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-11-06  chessfreako: Wow... This is quite a good specimen of how to aattack on the kingside... Quite surprised nobody found this game before... 21. h4! Clears up the h-file and allow white to dominate it while black's rooks and queen are stuck on the queenside.

21.. h6? Isn't a good move as it just allows white to directly harass Black's king from the open H-File.

21.. gxh4 is slightly better than 21.. h6 but it is still too much for black to handle. Here's an interesting line:
21.. gxh4
22. Nxh4 Bb7
23. g5 Nfh5
24. Qe3 f6
25. g6 Nf4
26. Rxf4!! exf4
27. Qxf4 hxg6(If not hxg6... It would be certain mate with 28. Qh8.) 28. Nxg6

White can then play 29.Qh6!! and black would lose the game.

Great Game by these 2 players!

Jun-11-06  Raskolnikov: <chessfreako> I won´t call this game "great". After Black allowing to close the centre, White can launch an attack on the kingside without any risk.I´ve just 2042 ELO but I would consider 21.h4 as the 1st possibility. After 22. hg hg it is already " ", I think...

You know, I hate to jump to conclusions about these things, but I can't shake the feeling that Black has been positionally outplayed.
