   Apr-13-17 J Dworakowska vs Shabalov, 2006
Gurn: White is in a weakened state. But how about 25. Rf1 Qh3 26.Rxf2 with knight going to e3 and bishops to f1 and d2. White has too much material and to many options other than capturing into mate. Is the capture forced or just chess blindness?

Gurn: Ouch!
