Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-13-09  Eyal: This is quite an amazing game. Black's pieces are so harmoniously placed and coordinated, that after saccing a whole queen for a minor piece he can still conduct a "normal" attack, without any immediately forcing moves, and win.

In the final position, Black would win after 31.Re2 Nd3; or 31.Ke1 Re4+ 32.Kf1 Bh3+ 33.Kg1 Rxf4 34.Qxf4 Bxf4 35.cxb4 Be3+ 36.Rf2 Rc2; or 31.Kc1 Bxf4 (threatening Nd3+ winning the queen, since Rd2 is pinned) 32.Qxa7 (32.Kb1 Bf5+ 33.Ka1 Nd3 and White has no good defence against ...Ra4+ [34.Qxa7 b5]) 32...Nd5 33.Kb1 Bf5+ 34.Ka2/a1 Nc7 to be followed by Ra8.
