  OhioChessFan: 17...hxg6 is called for in this typical French position.
Jun-12-20  jith1207: August 19 would be hundred years anniversary of this game of the 5-time British women's Champion.

  offramp: 24.Rh7+ is a good final move, to get the queen to h6.
Jun-12-20  Kay Sadeeya: White takes out the Kings horse and the cavalry reserves are too late in coming for reinforcement.
Jun-12-20  jith1207: I like 24..Kf8 25.Qf4+

Jun-12-20  Brenin: Black could (and should) have tried c5 on moves 11, 12 or 13. Opening up the a2-g8 diagonal with 17 ... fxg6 was fatal: hxg6 would have been fine, with pressure along the e-file and the a8-h1 diagonal to compensate for the draughty h-file.
Jun-12-20  Granny O Doul: I wouldn't want to be Black but she might have resisted a bit with 22...Rh8, while 22. Rxg6+ Kxg6 23. Nh4+ Kg7 24 Qh5 would have finished things off nicely.
Jun-12-20  goodevans: <Granny O Doul> I like your 22.Rxg6+ finish but even if 22.dxe5 isn't quite as precise it's still too late for black. Her position is what Malcolm Tucker would describe as an omnishambles.

Against <22.dxe5 Rh8> white can push <23.e6> and soon either the Q will deliver a fatal check on the a1-h8 diagonal or the threat of her doing so will win decisive material.

Here are a couple of lines but others are similar or worse.

23...Nf8 24.Nf6 Bxf3 25.Qe5

23...Rce8 24.Qd2 Bxe4 25.exd7 Rd8 26.Qd4+

Jun-13-20  Ironmanth: Vastly impressed that she was a five time British champion, the last time at the age of 76! Truly inspirational. Thanks, chessgames. Y'all continue to stay safe out there.
