Nov-29-14  Jjoq: Funny. Paulo could make a draw (25. ... Ra2=). But he didn't see 27. Qh7+.
Nov-29-14  yadasampati: What happens after 22. ... a3 (instead of axb3)? I do not see how white can avoid the mate with Qb2#. White has 3 checks: 23. Qxh7+, Qxg6+ or Bxf7+. But all of these seem to lead to a dead end. Please enlighten me :-)
Nov-29-14  yadasampati: OK, i think i got it. White seems to be able to draw with 23. Qxh7+ after 22. ... a3

  offramp: Superb game and a really good pun.
Nov-29-14  gofer: <25 ... Rxa2> looks to be a draw for black and in hindsight he should have taken it!
Nov-29-14  rogl: I think white can simply run away with 23.Kc1 after 22...a3.
Nov-29-14  morfishine: <rogl> has the simplest solution to 22...a3; I don't think White draws after 23.Qxh7+

Marvelous game causing one's heart to skip a beat


Nov-29-14  americanlala: <Jjoq> I agree that its difficult to see Qh7+ but its not that difficult to see Bxf7+ which is also winning for white since white can simply play d5 after getting his queen on f6. Now white is simply a rook up after this position and black has no mating threats whatsoever. Probably Black was in time trouble.

Isn't that how it usually works? One doesn't see something, and the other wins.

Nov-29-14  Zkid: <americanlala> 27.Bxf7 Kh8 doesn't mean much unless you see 28. Qxh7 anyway.
Nov-29-14  sorokahdeen: All chessgames are a conversation. That one was an exchange of obscenties!
Nov-29-14  welhelm1982: Beginers
Nov-30-14  Yopo: I think if 22...a3 23. Kc1 to escape if Qb2check.
Moreover, 22..a3 23.Kc1, Qb2+ 24.Kd2
threatening both Ra1 and gxf5
