  patzer2: Even though he's the exchange down, Black initiates a mating attack in 34...a4!, which is finished off neatly with the winning double discovered check 37...bxc2+! to force White's resignation.

In the final position, play would continue 38. Ka1 Rb1+ 39. Rxb1 cxb1(Q)+#.

  fredthebear: Yes, indeed! The raking bishops help produce a promotion mate. Who would have guessed that 4...a6 would eventually promote (had White not resigned).

This game got spicy when 22.Nxe6 Rfc8 was played. White was better at the time.
