  al wazir: 29. Rf2 would have defended. But 27. Rd8+ looks stronger for white than 27. exf5, which opened the diagonal.

"Oh say can you Xi" - some one find a game between a Xi and anyone.

Thank you, sir!

  thegoodanarchist: And a very brave game by Black, IMO. I don't think I would have played some of those moves.
May-12-16  Apoline48: 27 Rd8+ wins the Queen!!
May-12-16  Pantagruel: Here's short little game from early in Donald Byrne's career: K Burger vs D Byrne, 1952 You could call it Don's early light.
But really, we should be doing this in July.

  kevin86: Brilliant final move! Black picks up a rook!
May-12-16  AvidChessMan: Yes, 27 Rd8+ wins the queen, but she was pinned to the diagonal anyway. Why not gobble up a pawn and give your rook access to Rg4+? This forces black to make the exchange.

  WannaBe: As a side note, the photo of Seth was taken at this tournament. But I can't remember who Seth was waiting for, or what round it was.
May-12-16  Sarasosio: Can anyone explain why Homa moves 32. Bc6? From what I can see, 32. Rg5 forces a checkmate in four more moves. Surely there's some context I'm missing here.

By the Don Seiter early light
May-12-16  Sarasosio: When you miss the obvious threat right in front of you.
May-12-16  Marmot PFL: This looks like either a "must win" for white or extreme time trouble (31 Qxb4??)
May-13-16  Moszkowski012273: Good lord white fell apart at the end here.... Pretty much any rook move at move 29 wins quite easily for white.
