Kibitzer's Corner
May-20-14  Everett: Whites 30th is a nice thematic strike, and as <30..exd5 31.e6> is trouble for Black.

The powers of the h6 pawn finally rears its head with Whites 37th. If <37..Qxc5 38.Ne4> hitting the Q and f6 looks devastating.

Excellent game.

May-20-14  tarraschfan: How about 37..Qxc5 38.Qb8.+ ?
May-20-14  Whitehat1963: Good Friday puzzle after 29...Qe7.
May-22-14  Everett: May-20-14 < tarraschfan: How about 37..Qxc5 38.Qb8.+ ?>

Looks great, picking up the N after 38..Qf8

May-22-14  csmath: 30. Bxd5! is a brilliant strike with devastating effect.

31 Bc4!! is even more brilliant move. See the following possible continuation:

31. ...Bxc4
32. cxd4 Rxc4?
33. Rb1! Rc8?
34. Rb7! Rd8
35. Ne4!

and black is completely lost.
Black's king position is just horrendous and a source of many possible continuations.

Nov-12-14  fisayo123: Surely one of Nepo's best games.
