Dec-12-04  dippel: A very nice queen sacrifice by Bent Larsen 42. Qxf5!! and enjoy the little killer move 44.c6!! - a wolf in sheep's clothing.
Dec-25-04  dippel: After the little killer move 44.c6! it's mate in 7 e.g.: 44...Qxc6 45.Rxc6 Kf8 46.Bg5 Ke8 47.Rd6 axb3 48.Rd8#
Feb-13-06  Chess Classics: <dippel> The moves are right according to F8, but I don't see how that's mate in 8. Do you mean 8-ply?
