  tpstar: "26. Qh8+ 1-0

Actually 26. Rxg5+ hxg5 27. Qh8+ Kf7 28. Qh5+ etc. leads to an even quicker mate. Still, the text is perfectly adequate to secure the jettison of Black's towel in view of 26 ... Kf7 27. Qg7+ Ke8 28. Re1! Qxe1 29. Bg6+ Kd8 30. Qxf8+ Qe8 31. Qxe8#. The final phase of this game was really a massacre, but notable for the extremely economical way in which all the White pieces piled into the attack."

I looked at this game, since it came up, wondered what the finish would be after black resigned. I came up with 26 ... Kf7 27. Qg7+ Ke8 28. Re1 Q:e1 29. Qd7#

Seems legit.
