   Jan-19-06 Rubinstein vs Hromadka, 1923 (replies)
Darknite: 27.Rxa7+ Kb8 28.Rfxb7+ Kc8 29.Ba6 with mate next move - only save is 29..Qxd3+ 30.Bxd3 and black is totally busted

Darknite: <alicefujimori> ah yes - im sorry - as i said im at work. I will take some time later on to look at this thoroughly

Darknite: And this is why GM chess does not get wider attention - there is so much in this position and the draw is agreed.....

Darknite: <Averageguy> dont worry about it - so did Charles Frizzel

Darknite: When i was living in London in the early 90's i one day walked into a little coffee shop called i believe the Mozart Cafe on Haverstock Hill in Hampstead. Inside there was a motley collection of people smoking, driniking coffee and playing chess. I ended up playing a game or two ...

Darknite: 12. Nxf7
   Dec-07-05 B Kantsler vs Smirin, 2005 (replies)
Darknite: 25....Qxh2! Lovely move. Although its not really a queen sac because black wins back the queen by force, it wins 2 pawns and creates a dominating position. The fact that 27.Kg3 is forced is the justification for all of Smirin's play. 27. Kg1?? Nh3+ 28. Kh2 Nxf2+ 29.Kg1 Nh3+ 30.Kh2

Darknite: but then we are back to my original point of an immediate Qb6 or Bh6 stopping the whole f5 line before it starts...

Darknite: <saruman> having now spent more than 30 seconds looking at this i must apologize - your lines certainly appear to be best. Qc4 may actually just lose!
   Nov-29-05 S Belkhodja vs Tiviakov, 2005
Darknite: I guess more interesting would be 26 Ra1?! although something like 26 Ra1?! Nxc3 27 Rxa4 Nxd1 followed by 28...Rxd3 is probably bad for white.
