Dec-04-05  Karpova: 31.Qg4! (31.Rf7+ Qf7:!! 32.Nf7: Rd1+)
Dec-16-09  roastedrook: 34.Qe3 is # !!
Mar-14-21  N.O.F. NAJDORF: I noticed that too.

It isn't the first time I have seen a mate in one missed in play.

I can only think that Yates had become so committed to keeping his queen on the d1-h5 diagonal that he overlooked it.

Still, the fact that he played 34 h4 instead suggests he was aiming to deliver a killer check on the c1-h6 diagonal, and his opponent obviously then spotted the threat.

Apr-13-21  N.O.F. NAJDORF: Why did Black not play 31 ... Qg8,

followed by 32 ... Rf8 ?
