Mar-23-06  aragorn69: Nigel Short's comments on the final moves : <<26.Re5!!(A beautiful combination.) Qa2 (If 26..fxe5 27.Bxe5+ Rg7 28.Rxb6! Rxb6 29.Bxg7+ wins the queen.) 27.Rbe1 Qc2 28.Qf5! (Homing in on the Black king.) Qxc6 29.Re7 Rg6 30.Rxh7+ Black resigns. (After Kxh7 31.Re7+, it is mate in short order. Fabulous stuff from Radziewicz.)>>
Mar-23-06  aragorn69: White's 26th is indeed worthy of a puzzle !!

BTW the rook can't be take on moves 27 and 28 either, because of the 7th row invasion, which mates.

Mar-25-06  numcrun: That's awesome. Will keep an eye on this player. Perfect play in the end.
