Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-11-06  Grosbill: 34 Qxe8+


Nov-18-08  melianis: I can see it wins, but how quickly... yes, a mate in 8: 34.Qxe8+ Ng8 35.Nd6! (best)

diversion (four different ways to get a piece), most moves: (35.Ng5! Rxg5 36.Qxe6 Rg6 37.Qe8 Re6 38.Qxe6 h6 39.Rf8 Kh7 40.Qxg8+ Kg6 41.g4 b3 42.Rf6#)

promotion (this may be what I'd have played):
(35.Nf6 gxf6 36.exf6 Nc7 37.f7 Nxe8 38.fxe8=Q and a couple of different mates in 4.)

35...h6 36.Qxg6 Ne7

(Mate03 36...Nf6 37.Rxf6 Kg8 38.Rxe6 Kh8 39.Re8#)

(Mate03 36...Nd8 37.Nf7+ Nxf7 38.Rxf7 c5 39.Qxg7#)

and the queenside is still safe:
37.Qxe6 b3 38.Rf8+ Kh7 39.Ne8 Ng8 40.Qf7 bxa2 41.Qxg7#

  Phony Benoni: I might have preferred 35.Qxe6. Black may have been hoping to go out in a blaze of glory.

The last half-dozen moves are so erratic that an incorrect scoresheet is possible.
