Kibitzer's Corner
May-19-11  TheTamale: I think White goofed with 15) Bxd5. He seems caught off guard by the knight check, which changes the course of the game. A game like this will never make Game of the Day, but a fun one nonetheless, with a nice ending.
Nov-03-11  AnalyzeThis: I think 11. Bxf6 may be better than 11. Bh4.
Jan-20-12  DiscoJew: Mate is coming.

A computer easily spots the mate-in-five for Black here, but I don't think Delmar can be blamed for missing it. Or, more likely, not even looking for it.
