Jun-12-07  notyetagm: What a great combination by Larsen:

32.Rg8+!! Kxg8 33.Qd8+ Kg7 34.h6+ Kxh6 35.Ng4+ Kh5 36.Nxf6+ Kh6 37.Ng4+ 1-0

32 ♖d8-g8+!! is a tremendous <DECOY FOR TEMPO>.

The end is 37 ♘g4+ and then

37 ... ♔h6-h5 38 ♕d8-h4#
37 ... ♔h6-g7 38 ♕d8-f6+ ♔g7-g8 39 ♘g4-h6#

It is simply gorgeous how 36 ♘g4xf6+ captures the Black f6-pawn, opening the d8-h4 diagonal for the White d8-queen to give mate on h4 in the first mating variation giving above.

Wow!! First, the exchange sacrifice to open the file, then the finishing shot. Larsen sure got his money's worth from his rooks!!

Aug-17-17  tonsillolith: Could anyone enlighten me on White's response to <25...Qxc3>? Not only does it win the pawn holding up White's queenside, but it also threatens check and the d4 rook.
Aug-17-17  tonsillolith: Oh, wait, I got it. It revolves around the pressure White gets on f7 after Qxa7.

  kenmacgillivray: If black on move 32 does not capture the rook but plays 32 ... Kh6 the best I can find for white is a perpetual with 33 Ng4+ Kxh5 34 Nxf6+ Kh6 35 Ng4+ etc.
Feb-24-18  nummerzwei: So what about 35...Kh5 36.Ne5+ Kh6 37.Qg4 Ra1+ 38.Kh2?
