Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-05-13  offramp: I suppose it's hard to concentrate when your opponent has a talking golden flute.
Sep-05-13  Abdel Irada: I wonder if this particular gang of wolves is any relation to this chap:

Sep-05-13  JohnBoy: 21.f5 is a sweet move, totally separating the black king from his heavy support.
Sep-05-13  lentil: 25. Qxg5!! (...fg 26. Rh8+! Bxh8 27. Rxh8#). Beautiful!

  kevin86: The finish was similar to Marshall's pipe game victory over Amos Burn.
Sep-05-13  Ratt Boy: Very nice.
Hasenfuss must have had a lucky rabbit's foot to get these combinations.

Yep. In both games, the king bishop was pinned, and a rook was coming to h8.

  Check It Out: Agree with <tga> and <lentil>, 25.Qxg5 is a beautiful move.
Sep-05-13  pericles of athens: Wow - black's Queen, Queen Rook, and Queenside pawns are total spectators. Usually in the Sicilian Dragon, Black pushes the Q-side pieces aggressively. Everything here happens on the Kingside, with White throwing everything at it.
Sep-05-13  Moszkowski012273: 26.Rh8+ is much stronger
Sep-07-13  JohnBoy: <Moszkowski012273: 26.Rh8+ is much stronger> How do you figure? Support your claim.
Sep-07-13  Moszkowski012273: The rook is untouchable because of the mate threat via f6. So after 26.Kf7 (forced) 27.fxg6+, Nxg6 28.Qxd5+ is absolutely crushing.
