  patzer2: Anna's 27...Nxf4! sham sacrifice crushes the weak White King position. If 28. gxf4, then 29. Qxf4+ Kh3 30. Qf2! gives White an overpowering attack.

  patzer2: <turbo231> Beautiful queen trap indeed! With 34. Rg3+! (set up by 33. Ra6!) the queen is trapped in three moves.

  beenthere240: It seemed like black got her great position by refuting while's 2 earlier and somewhat pathetic king-side demonstrations: 1) 15. Re5 Rh5 etc and returning to e1, then 2) 20. h4, Qh5, f4 etc. Actualy Zatonskih's play in this tournamet had a lot of counterpunching.
