May-31-06  piteira8: if 36. ... hxg6, 37. Rh8 ch. - Kf7, 38. Rh7 ch. - Kg8 (or Kg6), 39. Rxd7, keeping the bishop and regaining the queen.

May-31-06  Pepitin17: Impresive game by the young Cuban!!!
May-31-06  Petrocephalon: <piteira8> There's a small error in your analysis: 26..hxg6 37.Rh8+ Kh7 38.Ng5#

If 38.Rh7+?, then ..Kxe6 39.Rxd7 doesn't recover the sac'd material.

Jun-03-06  piteira8: Thanks Petrocephalon. You are right.
Jun-05-06  notyetagm: Beautiful attack by Dominguez.
Oct-28-06  Pepitin17: Why hasn`t this game being game of the day its really a great game.
Jun-02-08  Capatin17: great game!!! one of my favorite Leinier Games
Dec-15-13  Eduardo Bermudez: Beautiful chess game !!

  FSR: 36.Qxg6+ hxg6 37.Rh8+ Kf7 38.Ng5#
Jun-13-17  Chizoad: 32. Nh5! is a very nice move:

32. Nh5 gxh5 33. gxh5 Rf8 34. Rg1+ Kf7 35. Rg7+ and the black queen falls.

Beautiful and smooth attack from white here.

  al wazir: Where's the win after 32...gxh5 ? If 33. Rxh5, then 33...Qf7 34. Rg5+ Bg6 35. f4 Ne7. Now what?
Jun-13-17  radtop: Masterful game. The pawn on a5 was poisoned as well.
Premium Chessgames Member
  al wazir: Never mind, I see: 33. gxh5, followed by Rg1+.
Jun-13-17  stst: Nice but tricky finish... Q-sac but not Monday!! 36.QxB+ hxQ (forced, nothing else helps, even Qg7 got crushed by QxQ#) 37.Rh8+ Kf7 (only sq.====> but watch out right here!!) 38.Ng5# ==> such a nice position just made for this configuration, the K has no more escape sq.

IF 38.Rh7+ looking for RxQ will be a BIG Mistake, for then KxN , RxQ and KxR... White has almost nothing left!!

  agb2002: The material is identical.

Black threatens Q(R)xe6.

White can deliver mate in three: 36.Qxg6+ hxg6 37.Rh8+ (37.Ng5 Qg7) 37... Kf7 38.Ng5#.

Jun-13-17  Cheapo by the Dozen: I had more trouble with this than I should have, for a very stupid reason: I forgot that the recapturing pawn would be on g6, and hence that g6 wasn't a flight square.
Jun-13-17  diagonalley: <cheapo> ... i'm soooo glad that you made the same oversight as yours truly... DOH!
Jun-13-17  AlicesKnight: The way in is blasted by 36.Qxg6+ - ....hxg6; 37.Rh8+ Kf7; 38.Ng5#. Let's see - they seem to agree.
Jun-13-17  Walter Glattke: Queen sac, forced mate.
Jun-13-17  get Reti: I made the same mistake as both Cheapo by the Dozen and diagonalley, thinking that the king could escape on g6. It's a pretty strong optical illusion!
Jun-13-17  morfishine: <36.Qxg6+> forces mate: 36...hxg6 37.Rh8+ Kf7 and now <38.Ng5#>

  malt: 36.Q:g6+ hg6 37.Rh8+ Kf7 38.Ng5#

  whiteshark: Like some previous posters, I also had to realize that <square g6> is not available as a flight square as thought in my initial calculation.
Jun-13-17  Carlos0012358: Mate is three!
Jun-13-17  saturn2: I solved this one but not at first glimpse.
