Dec-06-06  Whitehat1963: What's the finish? I suppose this makes a good puzzle after 23...f6.
Dec-06-06  babakova: The finisg might go something like

24...fxe5 25.Be6+ Kh8 26.fxe5 and now if the queen moves away to say.. 26...Qb4 27.Rf7 looks absolutely crushing.

Dec-06-06  babakova: Or why not simply 26...Qb4/Qa3 27.Bf5 Kg8 28.Qh7+ Kf7 29.Bg6+ Ke6 30.Bf7+ Kd7 31.Qf5#. There is always a simpler solution to things when you look harder.
Apr-15-11  rookey1986: or even quicker:
29.Be6++ with mate next move...

  plang: One variation is 17..Qd6 18 Qc2..Qe6 19 Ne5..Bf6 20 Rfd1..Bxe5 21 dxe..Qxe5 22 Nxd5!..Bxd5 23 Bxd5..Rxd5 24 Rxd5..Qxd5 25 Rd1..Qg5 26 Qe4..Ra7 27 Qe8+..Kh7 28 Qxb8..Re7 29 Qxb6 with an extra pawn. 23..Bc8 would have been a tougher defense; instead after 23..f6? 24 Qg6 the game was over.
