Sep-25-10  mariola: Did white win on time ?
Why not 25... Qb4
Sep-25-10  Calar: On 25...Qb4 white has 26. Qf3+
Sep-25-10  nikromos: If 25 . . . Qb4 26. Qf3+ is no good because of Kb8. 26. Qe3 wins the Bishop and the game due to extra pawn and exposed B King.

  al wazir: Why not 19. Bxf7 ?

After 25. Rc7 Qxb2, what does white have? If 26. Qe4+ Kb8 27. Qxe7, then 27...Qa1+ 28. Kg2 Qxa2 29. Qxf7 Qa5, and black has a shot at a perpetual. If instead 27. Rxe7, then 27...Rf8 28. Re8+ Rxe8 29. Qxe8+ Kb7 30. Qxf7+ Kh6 31. Qxh7 Qxa2.

White should win, but he still has a long slog. I would have played on a few more moves.

  Sastre: If 25...Qxb2, then 26.Rxe7. Black can't play 26...Qxa2 because of 27.Qe4+ Kb8 28.Qb7#. Attempting to guard b7 with 26...Rb8 fails to 27.Qe4+ Rb7 28.Re8#. The exposed nature of Black's king and White's control over the seventh rank and the h1-a8 diagonal means that Black will always have to guard against mate threats, especially on b7. Furthermore, White can slowly pick off Black's weak queenside pawns.

  Domdaniel: 7...Nxd4 is very dubious: White just gets too much initiative for the pawn. Instead, 7...e6 is solid and gives Black some hope of castling, while 7...Qxd4 is better if he really wants to grab a pawn (it gets interesting after 8.Nb5).

This (7...Nxd4) line has been played a few times before, generally resulting in quick wins for White.

The final position here is an easy win.

  Fusilli: Amazing. After 7...Nxd4 all White has to do is to play natural development moves and look for tactical themes.
