PS. It should be noted that Black's threat in the final position is 61...Rh1+ 62. Kxh1 Qc1+ 63. Kh2 Qg1# to which White has no decent defense.

For example, 61. Q8h7 Bxg3+ 62. Qxg3 Qxh7+ ; 61. Q3h7 Bxg3+ 62. Kh3 Rh1+ 63. Kg4 Rxh7 .

  Gilmoy: It's a one-Rook Damiano rotated 90 degrees ccw!

I'd like to see that added as a move variant: <castles counterclockwise>

2) Firman vs McShane (Reeh variation) BL 2011-2012

http://www.chessbase.com/cbm/reeh20...

The white queen h3 muss not abandon g3, and after the pinning attempt 61.Q8h7 decides the deflection 61 ... Bxg3+! and 62....Qxh7+.

3) notyetagm vs Strassman (JORGE VARIATION) CMC Thursday G/90 2012 Qa1-a2!? threatens Black b3-rook, Ra7xBa8!

May-31-12  luzhin: Fantastic conclusion with 60...Qc7 (which Luke must have seen when playing 55...Rxd1!). But it's a mystery why White didn't play the obvious 30.Bb8, when he must be close to winning.
