May-12-09  PinnedPiece: What you call a two-fer at the end.

35.Rxe6 is a blunder, I suppose. But Shulman certainly set it up nicely. Both white knight and bishop are lost, owing to the proximity of the white rook to the king. It is unable to deliver an escaping check after 36..Bxc4. So the white bishop remains en pris, and basically dead meat, since the black bishop after taking the knight is under the protection of the black rook.

White was not short on time (about 18 min to 6 min for black). . .
