Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-01-04  notyetagm: A beautiful attacking game by White. After 33 ... ♕xf1+ 34 ♔xf1, White is threatening mate in three different ways:

35 ♖g8#
35 f8=♕#
35 ♗d4+ e5 36 ♗xe5#

Too many threats to meet at the same time so Kharlov resigns.

Nov-01-04  Morphystyle: Poor opening play by black. What is with that light squared bishop moving around so much. It also stops the rest of his queenside from getting into play...the extra pawn in not worth it. Great capitalization by white.
Nov-21-07  computer chess guy: White had a couple of chances to play ♕g4! with an attack even stronger than in the game. For example, 25. ♕g4 with the possible continuation .. a6 26. exf7+ ♗xf7 28. ♘ge6 ♗xe6 29. ♘xe6 ♖f7 30. ♗xh6 and then only the desperate .. ♕f8 can hold off mate. The threats around the King are so strong that White doesn't even need the Rooks in the attack.
