  An Englishman: Good Evening: 24.Rh1. What a shot; methinks we see a future Puzzle of the Day.
Jul-17-19  Pedro Fernandez: Totally yes! My great <AEM>. I didn't see, my friend, that that move 20...g4? was so pernicious. Greetings!
Jul-18-19  syracrophy: 20...♗xf2?? was a little pitfall: 21.♖c8+! ♗xc8 22.b6+ ♗d7 23.axb7 +- and though White didn't win the ♕ he will promote one!
Jul-25-19  TheBish: Nice win, a miniature! Leinier's other win in this tournament is also interesting, but this has a really instructive finish. The final two rook moves are hammer blows! 24. Rh1! takes advantage of the weak back rank (Black gets mated after 24...Rxh1 25. Qg8+), and after 25. Rh5! Black falls apart, as his dark-squared bishop has no moves, no defense to Rxf5 and Qxg3.

Black was a tad optimistic leaving his king in the center. I was thinking that maybe playable was 20...Bd8 and 21...Be7, but he has no time! Because White has the same crushing move (only earlier), 21. Rh1!.
