  ToTheDeath: Beautiful defense and counterattack.
Feb-07-09  addiction to chess: Truly great! By 19.Rh3, I thought black was toast. The only move now is 19...h5 where 20.gxh6 was played. Only then did I realize Black's winning move, 20...Kh7! halting the entire attack! And after a few defensive touches, black was then care-free with his king and went for that powerful attack. And after some brilliant finesses (28...Qc5!), Black had a winning attack and finished the game in a blaze of fire!

<addiction to chess> After 20...♔h7, the White h-pawn is almost like a black pawn, shielding the Black king from an attack along the h-file.
