Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-27-09  Notagm: Beautiful finish. 30 ... Rd7 deflects the White Queen from the b8/h2 diagonal. If the Queen leaves this diagonal (as it has to to avoid capture), Black plays 31 ... Qg3, threatening mate on h2. If 32 hxg3, 32... Nxg3 is mate. Beautiful mate with two knights.

Alternatively, if 32 gxf3, 32... Bxf3 also leads to mate.

Mar-27-09  DefianceX: 31 .. Ng3+ followed by Qh5# is surely better without having to look it up since its more forceful.

And according to my engine 31 ..Qg3 is defended by 32. Qd6

Mar-27-09  checknox: I'd say 12. f4!? was more tesing than 12. b3. White went too passive in the middlegame, and his light-square Bishop was just like prisoner behind his own pawns.

Anyway, nice game. Black does some mess on the Queenside, then switches attention on second wing and hunts the King. White counterplay in center proves to be futile.

Mar-27-09  sfeuler: You need to give your engine a tune-up, there's a white rook on d6... : )
Mar-27-09  ounos: Maybe you should give your eyes some tune-up? There is no white rook on d6!
Mar-27-09  Notagm: DefianceX: You are right. As you correctly state, '31 .. Ng3+ followed by Qh5# is surely better', and 31 ..Qg3 is indeed defended by 32. Qd6, as the White Queen is defended by the Rook on d1.

At least I was right about it being a beautiful finish (even if not quite for the right reason).

Apr-11-09  sfeuler: My eyes just got a tune-up, your'e right <ounos> there is no Rook on d6!
