Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-26-05  chess man: An excellent attack by Blackburne. Obviously if 18.fxe3 then 18...Rxg3 is checkmate.
Apr-26-05  aw1988: Nope, white has Kf2.
Apr-28-05  chess man: I was waiting for someone to see my mistake...It didn't take too long!
Apr-28-05  Boomie: 18. fxe3 ♕xg3+ 19. ♔h1 ♕g2# looks pretty tasty.

  fredthebear: 17...Ne3 18.fxNe3 is forced, else 18.Qg2#. After 18.fxNe3 QxBg3+ (the f-pawn no longer defends the bishop) 19.Kh1 Qh3+ 20.Nh2 Qg2# supported by the rook.
