Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-27-06  hitman84: This is one of my favourite Yusupov games.

A nice game that teaches what happens when you dont have any piece defending the king.

after move 19 white has three pieces pointing at the black's king and all the black's pieces are concentrated on the Queen side.

Yusupov uncorks a brilliant two piece sacrifice to rip open the black's king.

Apr-27-06  hitman84: <>This could be a puzzle after move 20.
Apr-08-11  antonius1977: what if black plays 28. ... Rxd5??

  Sastre: 28...Rxd5 29.Qxe6+ Kg7 30.cxd5 .
Nov-10-14  AlbertoDominguez: Does 28.Rd3 win in essentially the same way as 28.Re5?

Or does one of the defensive moves that fail in response to Re5 (e.g., 28...Rd7, 28...Rf8, 28...Qc7) actually refute Rd3?

It looked solid to me, but I was wondering if I had overlooked something. I'm going through Yusupov's BUYC1 and he doesn't mention this alternative.

Nov-10-14  Nerwal: After 28. ♖d3 ♕c7 29. ♖g3+ the black queen can take on g3 to avoid immediate mate with ♖g3+/♖h3+/♖h8#. Of course it's still completely hopeless (and white nevertheless mates with 29. ♖h3 ♕g7 30. ♕xe6+), but 28. ♖e5 doesn't even offer this possibility and ♖g5+/♖h5+/♖h8# can't be avoided at all (which is valuable in practical play, especially in time trouble).
