Jun-25-16  Keshav Murali: I find it amusing how Ganguly has went pawn grabbing twice (with this game, and the game against the winawer) and has gotten away with it.

Black's 24th was a stinker, but he was already lost.

24. Qd2! is a beautiful move, 24...hxg5? leads to 25. Qd5+ Kh7/Kh8 26. h4! mating or dragging the black king to his doom in the middle of the board

Black should have played 22...Rxc4! exchanging off the queens where 23. bxc4 is refuted by 23...Qa4+, Qxd5 and taking back the rook

Very hard to see if you're low on time.

The machine also thinks the immediate 23. Qd2 is stronger, which I think is just positionally lost for black.

Against the text move, the machine recommends an intensely ballsy continuation 23...Qxa2 24.Rxg7+ Kf8 25.Rxh7 Rd8+ 26.Bxd8 Rxd8+ 27.Kc1 Qa1+ which leads to a perpetual

  Resool Uut: QUITE AMUSING: to see the rook mating without any movement at all: after 24... hg5 25 Qd5 Kh the smashing h4 h5 h6 finishes. And the black king died the moment he saw this rook.
