Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-09-13  Skakalec: I hope Mr. <Docx> gets some money from Microsoft as sponsorship :-)
Nov-10-13  Calar: Here we have hack attack that works - and in the 2500 game nonetheless. Bold and courageous play by Stefan Docx.

In the final position, main threat is 25.Rxh6 gxh6 26.Qh7#. If Black tries to prevent this by 24...Re7, then White simply proceeds with 26.g7+ Kh7 27.g8=Q#. Only way Black can avoid the mate is by losing a piece with no compensation at all (24...Bf4), while White retains his threats.
