  Eggman: 24...♘c5 was worth a try. I can't find a clear win against it, and it's certainly more appealing than 24...♔xf7 as played.

  Gypsy: A rare case where the attacter abandons a x-pin.

<24...Nc5 was worth a try....> It looks like even thus, 25.Qh3 would have kept the attack going very strong.

In the game, if <25.Qf3+> Kg8 then 26.Qh3 Kf7 27.Qxh7+ (26...Nf4 27.Qb3+); and if <27.Bd7+> Kf7 then 28.Qb3+ (27...Kd8 28.Bxc8++).

Jul-07-05  lentil: 27. Bd7+!! must have come as a nasty shock to B.
Jul-07-05  Shams: 24...Nc5 25.Qh3 Qb7 26.Ne5 and black is helpless
