Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-07-11  hedgeh0g: 24.Bxh6!! is the beginning of a remarkable combination which wins material for White. Some very strong calculation by White and a good Sunday puzzle candidate.

Nov-08-11  rilkefan: Pretty gutsy from Gustaffson, <del>unless</del> even if he really had it all worked. My installation of stockfish isn't choosing Bxh6 at a depth of 30 (4.0 Gnodes).
Nov-08-11  rilkefan: Went forward a few plies and it thinks 25...gxh6 is 0.00 (which presumably means perpetual is best) at a depth of 30 (it settles on that line in a few seconds). It immediately sees 25...Nf6 as +3 for white and stays about there. It immediately sees 26...Kf8 as +5.5 for white.

Maybe Gustaffson saw that Bxh6 is a drawing line but was ok with that, plus figured black could go wrong, maybe in time pressure.

Jul-17-12  PretentiousMan: RealistiCALly, I feel yoga and being a vegan enriches the soul of a man going through a midlife crisis who also has an old face on a massive balloon head.

  FSR: Gustafsson really "effed" him up.
