Nov-10-05  Petrocephalon: You meant of course 28.Ra6!! A Sunday puzzle I hazard no one would get. There's a cute little 'triangulation' with the queen in there: Qe4-c6-e8-e4, leading to the point of the combo, 36.c6.
Dec-01-05  Petrocephalon: Of 16.Re1:
"Nowadays I would not offer the pawn, but would continue with the simpler c5, a4, b5. The conclusion would not be so pretty, but the winning process would be more certain" - Tarrasch
