May-11-05  Everett: After 18...Kxh7, what's white's follow-up?
May-11-05  mack: 19.Rh1+ wins.
May-11-05  Everett: Confirmed chess blindness. Thanks <mack>, for curing me, albeit temporarily.
Nov-04-13  luzhin: Actually 18.Rxh7+ is a terrible blunder, when 18.Rdh1 is winning. But Black obliged with the insane 19...Kh6??. After 19...Kh8 White can only shake his head.
Nov-04-13  fokers13: 20.Qxg8+ and white is still better.
Nov-04-13  luzhin: What on earth do you mean? After 20.Qxg8+
Qxg8 21.Bxg8 Rxg8 Black is up two Bishops.
Jan-27-15  Cheapo by the Dozen: 19 ... Kh8
20 Rh1 Bh4
21 Rxh4 Qxh4
22 gxh4

looks like it might still be good for White. Material is queen for two rooks, and Black has several pieces in precarious positions (including from the potential d5 skewer), while White is pretty OK except for the e2 knight.

Jan-27-15  jvv: There is no need for Bh4, after 20.Rh1 Rg7 black wins.

  wwall: Looks like I castled in a trap after 14...O-O?. After 15.Bxh6 gxh6? (15...Na5 looks better) 16.Rxh6 Kg7 17.Rdh1, threatening 18.Qf4 and 19.Wg5 mate. After 17.Rdh1 Na5 18.e5 dxe5 19.dxe5 wins.

In the game, 16.Rxh6 Kg7 17. Qf4 (threatening 18.Qg5 mate) 17...Rg8, and now, not 18.Rh7+?? as in the game, but 18.Rdh1! (threatening 19.Rh7+ Kf8 20.Qh6+ Ke8 21.Bxf7 mate) 18...Kh8 19.Rh8 Rxh8(19...Be6 20.d5) 20.Rxh8+ Ng8 21.Qxf7 mate.

  GrahamClayton: 3...Qh4 allows White to push the Black Queen away while opening up the h-file for a future Kingside attack, which is what happened in this game.
