  keypusher: <TheFrench> 12 Bxf5 Qa5+
Sep-14-05  Brown: Final position white threatens 33.Qd3+ Kg8 34.Qg3+ Kh7 35.Qg7# and 33.Qxa3.

Without looking, one does wonder whether there is something better than 11...Bf5, as it swaps another piece away. Black wants to keep material on the board with the isolani, right?

Sep-14-05  Brown: Looking again, 30.Qf3 is the star move. I probably would have captured on f6, pat myself on the back and "earn" a draw.
May-11-15  tessathedog: A nice game, but 30 Qf3 may not be a real double attack after all. Kuzmin (and the annotators in Informator 24) seem to have missed that after 30...Kg7! 31 Qxb7? fails to 31...Qg4! (now that's a REAL double attack!)
