  Gypsy: Indee. After 20...Qc7, the windmill 21.Bxe6+ Bxe6 22.Qxe6+ Kh8 23.Nf7+ Kg8 24.Nxd8+ Kh8 25.Nf7+ Kg8 and, say 26.Nd6+ ... easily wins for White. (But there is no smothered mate.)

Dec-29-09  Talis: To Gypsy: "Indee. After 20...Qc7, the windmill..." First of all, 20...Qc7 looses the queen. Secondly, there is a mate after 20...Qb8 21.Bxe6+ Bxe6 22.Qxe6+ Kh8 23.Nf7+ Kg8: white play 24.Nh6+ Kh8 25.Qg8+!! Nxg8 26.Nf7x.
Dec-29-09  mertangili: <Talis> how 20...Qc7 looses the queen?
Jan-01-10  Talis: <mertangili> 21.Rxc7. OK, now I see that 21....Qc7 was meant. In this case we really have a windmill but no mate.
Oct-26-12  ForeverYoung: Very nice and well thought out sacrifice of the exchange for two unstoppable passed pawns.
