Jun-29-18  fispok: Final move is a novotny interference.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Gilmoy: Not quite a Novotný, since the Bc8's diagonal is not critical to stopping the mate. Hence <24..Qxd7> restores Black's protection of h7, which is why <24.Rd7> isn't a mate-in-2. So this is just a mundane (unnamed) interference.

Of course, White collects Q+B for R+B, which suffices to win. <23.Qh5+> was necessary so that Q-sees-d5, to eventually fork off the (will-be-)loose Bd7.

A true Novotný kind of requires that the interfering side has a <mate fork>. Then it's mate-in-2, no matter which piece captures.

would indeed have been possible. It boils down to a transposition of moves. ;)

Kudos Kaido Kulaots

But 23. Rd7 Qxd7 24. Bxd7 Bxd7 25. Qh5+ <Kg7> is possible, <not> transposing moves, and I don't see how White picks up the bishop.

Please try to find the flaw in your remark/line. ;)

Ahh, I missed that 23. Rd7 Qxd7 <24. Qh5+> does transpose moves (because 24...Kg7 <25. Qh7#>). I stand corrected.
