  wwall: Not so sure why Black resigned here. Black could play 24...b4 25.axb4 Qb6+ 26.Kg2 Qxb4 27.Rh3 h6.

Is 24...h6 OK? After 25.f6 Nxf6 26.gxf6 Nxf6 27.Bf5 Rdf8.

Or 24...Qc5+ 25.Kg2 b4.

Or 24...Qe8 25.g6 h6 and 26...Nf6

Aug-27-05  lentil: W has Rh3..
e.g. 24...b4 25. Rh3 h6 26. gh and it's over.

<24...b4 25. Rh3 h6 26. gh and it's over.> How is it over after 24...b4 25. Rh3 h6 26. gxh6 Nxh6?

My suggestion is 24...b4 25. Rh3 h6 26. f6 gxf6 27. Qg6, etc. which does look over.

<Not so sure why Black resigned here.> I don't see any quick crush against your suggested <24...Qe8>, but White looks winning after simply 24...Qxe8 25. Qxe8 Rfxe8 26. h4, followed by Nd5, etc. and White's pieces control all the important squares. But I agree resignation looks a bit premature.
