  tpstar: <outplayer> Thank you very much. =)

I was disappointed to miss 21. Rh7+! where 21 ... Kxh7 22. Qh5+ mates, then Black tried a countersacrifice (21 ... Rxf2+!?) which I blocked with 24. Be3, then I missed 25. Rh7+! again winning material. At least I didn't fall for a Knight fork on f4, while Black didn't fall for 32 ... Rxb2? either. Then simple tactics (Pin/Pile On & Skewer) won the endgame.

White's set-up with 3. Nd2 & 4. Ngf3 & 5. Bd3 & 6. Qe2 works better against Owen's Defense (1. e4 b6), as 3. c4 scores well against the St. George = Opening Explorer
