Feb-05-13  andr: I like move <22... ♘d7 !! ( If 22... ♔b6 ? than 23. ♕d3 ! and Black in trouble ( 23. ♖f3 is also possible ) )>

23. ♕xd7+

<( But now 23. ♕d3 does not help, because of 23... ♕xd3 24. ♘xd3 ♖xf8 24. ♔xb2 ♖h8 25. ♖d2 ( or 25. ♖h1 ) 25... ♖h3 followed by 26... ♘f6 with better ending for Black, but probably was too boring for Diemer. )

( On 23. ♖f3 simply 23... ♖xh2+ 24. ♖xc3 ♖xh7 )>

  fredthebear: Black has mate on the move with a discovered check Rd3+/Rd4+/Rd5+ take your pick. White can prolong the game with meaningless checks that give up material, but it won't prevent mate by the discovered check.

White's best try is 24.Rf3 to threaten the Black queen and force her to move from her perch, ruining the discovered checkmate that lurks. She dips to 24...Qc2 which threatens a support mate 25...Rxb1#, so White moves over to 25.Ra3 to prevent the capture and mate on a2. Now 25...Rb4 or Rb5 threatens two mates, 26...Qb2# or 26...QxRd1#. So White tries to block the b-file with 26.Rb3, but 26...RxRb3 still leaves the Rd1 hanging and with threat of 27...Qb2#. White can play on with 27.axRb3 QxRd1+ but now White is down the exchange with the worse ending and the less safe king.
