Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-22-07  who: Did he really resign just because of Qxb2?
Sep-13-08  dtsherer: what are u looking at? after Nxh5, Qxf2 check!, Qf1 mate.
Nov-15-08  PolishPentium: Sorry, <dtsherer>, but your comment doesn't seem to make sense. Who says White has to allow Nxh5? And with the White Rook safely on the back rank, how can Black pull off Qf1 mate? Simply 25 Bd1 or Bf3. True, Black can take a pawn, with 25...Qxb2, but it doesn't seem that catastrophic. Thus i'd agree with <who> that resignation does seem a little premature.
Sep-11-09  Kasparkov: <who> I think so..

and has a threat just like "dtsherer" said.
