Sep-24-07  Chicago Chess Man: The win in this game is similar to a game I've seen by Ray Keene, I think. Black plays the colossal blunder 19. Qc7?? and white wins by manuevering his queen to g3 and checking with the knight.
Oct-04-07  BlingKing: Has anyone played this game on Guess The Move yet? Maybe I'm retarded, but exactly what is wrong with 20. Ng4 or 21. Ng4??? And what, if anything, is the winning line here??
Oct-05-07  Ragh: <BlingKing> There is nothing wrong with 20.Ng5. Its just another way of winning, but Yusupow chose to follow the line he used here. But just for the sake of it, 20.Ng5 doesn't lead to mate any quicker though. It will be replied with 20..Be4 21.Nxf6+ Bxf6 22.Bxe4 and mate (after 3 moves).
Oct-09-07  Chicago Chess Man: <BlingKing> and <Ragh> There's no mate here. You didn't look close enough at my post. White's best line is to win black's queen by playing 20. Qg5+ Kh8 21 Qg4+ Kg7 22. Qg3+ Kh8 23. Nxf7+ Rxf7 24. Qxc7 1-0. It's true that 20 Ng4 is winning, but black's best reply is not 20 ...Be4? Then 21. Nxf6+ Bxf6. 22. Bxe4 and black is toast. Black's best reply to 20 Ng4 is, I think, 20...Rfd8. 21 Nxf6+ Bxf6 22. Qxf6. In this case, white is clearly winning, but has not won.
