Jul-22-10  Creative: Beautiful game, but i don't understand 21. Bxh7 Rd6??.
Jul-22-10  MrMelad: After 21.Bxh7 what can black do?

if 21..Rf8 then 22.Bg6+ and white wins the rook.
if 21..Rxh7 then 22.Qg8+ and white wins the rook.

Any other move fail to 22.Bg6+

Hope it helps..

Jul-22-10  Creative: My pc say:

21... Rxh7 22. Qg8 Bf7 23. Qxh7 Rxd2 24. c4 Rxh1 25. h4 Ke7 26 Qe4 Bc5 27 Qg4 f5 28. Qxg2 Kc8 29. Qe4 0-0 (Grand Master Chess).

Jul-22-10  MrMelad: I don't know about 24. c4 in your variation.

I would go for some checks and snatching some pawns with 24.Qh5+ Ke7 (24..Kd7 25.Qf7+ and the g pawn is ripe and tasty for the white queen, and 24..Kd8?? looses the rook after 25.Qa5++) 25.Qc5+ Kf7 26.Qxa7 and now white is one tempo ahead to exterminate black's left side pawns.

26..Rxc2 27.Qxb7 etc..

24.c4? in your variation leads to a tough endgame after 24..Rxa2 when suddenly the white queen must guard h2 and black rook is free to wonder around, but of course, Q is usually much better then R+B so white should win in any case.

Feb-20-11  YourNickname: 21... Rxh7 loses the rook, but not the game. The Rook and the Bishop can simply defend the other pawns. Look at this variation.

21 ... - Rxh7
22 Qg8+ - Kd7
23 Qxh7 - Ked
24 Ke2 - Bf8
25 Qg8+ - Ke7
26 Qc4 - Ke8
27 Qe6+ - Be7
28 h4 - Kf8
29 h5 - Re8 etc,
