Jan-27-06  LluviaSean: wow. so many of the last moves seemed so illogical. but they bite down on the black castled king and now he can only escape checkmate by losing valuable material.
Jul-06-07  JMJ565X: white's king is securely castled in the final position. black's king's house is getting torn up in the final position

Dec-01-09  Dr. ADHAM: Black realized that 18. ..gxf6 19.Nxf6+ Kh8 20.Qc3 ready for the unavoidable checkmate after moving N,so he moved 18. ..Kh8 to prepare to Rg8 to defend the weak pawn g7. After 20.Qg5 black did not play the intended move Rg8 because if he did, white will reply 21.Qh6! (threatening Qxh7#)where the 3 choices for black are hopeless: a)21..gxh6 22.Ne8+ Rg7 23.Bxg7+ Kg8 24.Nhf6# b)21..gxf6 22.Bxf6+ Rg7 23.Qxg7# c)21..Nf8 22.Nxg8 then 23.Qxg7#
Jun-20-10  binno: <Dr. ADHAM 18. ..gxf6 19.Nxf6+ Kh8 20.Qc3 ready for the unavoidable checkmate>

18. ..gxf6 19.Nxf6+ Kh8 20.Qc3 Ne5 and white seems quite lost.

Feb-23-18  Grandma Sturleigh: 18...gxf6 19 Nxf6+ Qxf6 also works for Black. The right reply to 18...gxf6 is 19. Rxd6
