Kibitzer's Corner
May-19-12  luzhin: The natural-looking 27.Rcg1?? is a terrible blunder: the point is that after 27...Rh6! 28.h3 Qxh3+! 29.Rxh3 Rxh3 is mate because White's rook occupies the g1 flight square.

  An Englishman: Good Afternoon: Black's unusual sacrifice seems speculative but worth the try; for a small outlay, he locks the Rb1 and Ba1 out of action on the Queen side. As a nice bonus, his own Queen gains access to the critical h4 square. I wonder if the bigger error was 24.Qd2. What if 24.Qf1 intending to drive away the Black Queen with Rg3 and either Qh3 or Rh3?
