Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-30-17  Delboy: Some good looking combinations in this so far unnoticed game. The exciting phase starts with a positional exchange sacrifice, that white sought to refute with the knight pseudo-sacrifice 25. Nxd5 (hoping for 25. ... exd5 26. Qxd5+ and 27. Qxd6). Instead white is jolted by the knight countersacrifice 25. ... Nh4+, and even more startled by the jaw-dropping 28. ... Bb4+. The bishop cannot be snatched because of 29. Nxb4 Qe5+ 30. Kd2 Rxf2+. Other defences do not necessarily look any better, e.g. 28. Bd3 Qd4
