Dec-08-04  patzer2: After the deflection move 31. Rxe5!, Black's Queen becomes an "overworked piece." Black drops a piece and makes a game but futile attempt at salvaging a draw.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: I think white missed a way to end this sooner: 37.Ng6+ hxg6 38.Rh5+ gxh5 39.Rxh5#.
Dec-08-04  patzer2: Of course 30...e5?? is the blunder that made 31. Rxe5! possible. Better was 30...Nd5 = with equality.

Earlier Black missed the pretty defensive combination 27...Ba8! 28. Rxa3 Qc5 29. Rb3 Nd5 30. Nb7 Nxc3 31. Nxc5 Nxe2+ 32. Nxe2 Rxc5 , where Black has a clear and near winning endgame advantage.
