  Fusilli: This is a remarkable sac... the exchange plus a pawn for attacking chances that Robson exploits admirably. Well done.

  fredthebear: <notyetagm> Thank you for the diagrams. 28.Ka2-b1 Ra4-a1# is known as Mayet's Mate, where the bishop on the long diagonal protects the checking rook on the back rank. It is sometimes referred to as Anderssen's Mate, but in that case it's a pawn that protects the checking rook.

This game was a sharp, shimmering attack by Robson smartly covering the various possible responses.
