Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-10-05  siggemannen: after 28... Kh8 white just plays Rhg1 and when queen moves sac rook on g5 after white mate or loss of material is forced
Mar-14-05  hartkoka: ♔h8 , ♗c2 is simpler
Mar-14-05  Shams: <hartkoka> yes, but it is not the simplest. look again...good grief I can`t believe both you guys missed it. :)
Apr-05-05  de schaar: maybe h4?
Apr-07-05  Shams: <siggemannen> 28...Kh8 and white has mate in one on the square known as g7 <hartkoka> 29...Kh8 20.Bc2?? fxg6 <de schaar> see above

glad I'm here to help.

Apr-07-05  Saruman: <Shams> Uhm, how did the queen get to g6 in that line?
Apr-07-05  Milo: Shams, you're talking about move 29, not 28.
Apr-08-05  Milo: The real question is, what happens after 25...g6
Apr-08-05  Shams: you know, I figured I must be making some silly mistake. a thousand pardons. I could kill my message, but I'll leave it up for all posterity as punishment.
Apr-09-05  Saruman: <Milo> The rather forceful 25.-g6?! 26.Bxf4! Qxg4 (white was threatening Qxg6+) 27.hxg4 exf4 28.Rxh6 , seems very convincing.
Apr-11-05  EmperorAtahualpa: I think Black's major mistake is that it doesn't occupy the d-rank, e.g. What good does 13. ♖fe8 do?
Jan-02-06  The17thPawn: <EmperorAtahualpa> Do you mean D-file? Ranks are numbered I believe. Just checking as I am still new.
Feb-15-19  jith1207: <The17thPawn>: you're right and hope you are expert now. ;)
