  Ron: 26. ... Qxb5 seems to be one of those moves that warrants at least one question mark. After 27. Qa2+, if black moves 27. ... Kf8 then 28. Qf7 mate. And if 27. ... Kh8 then it seems that the wind mill like tactic can occur: 28. Nf7+ Kg8 29. Nd6+ and black's queen is lost.
Aug-27-06  siggemannen: even better is the non-windmill tactic of 27...Kh8 29. Nf7 Kg8 30.Nh6 if 30...Kg8 then 31.Qg8 and 32.Nf7 mate, or 30...Kf8 31.Qf7 mate

  Ron: <siggemannen> You are correct sir! I sensed a smother mate possibility but you showed it.
