Dec-06-04  Chesspatch: 26. ... Qd6? Time pressure?
Jan-17-05  JohnBoy: By move 26, black is in a very bad way anyhow. The immediate threat is 27.Qf6+, picking up a pawn with sustained pressure.
Oct-22-06  chemicalterror: Really? Id think Bd5 is considerably more threatening. Text book "pin" eh?

  Benzol: 27...♔xf7 28.♖f1+ ♔e7 29.♕g7+ picks up both Black Rooks.

Also in the above line if 28...♔g8 then 29.♕g5+

  ChessCoachClark: After 29. ... Ke8, 30. Qxh8+, Rybka 4 x64 suggests 30. ... Qf8 as the best move for Black, which isn't saying much since White should have a mate in 24 with perfect play. Black is nominally better-- one less Pawn down than losing the second Rook, also.

The next best move is 30. ... Kd7, which should result in mate in 20, followed by 30. ... Ke7, which affords mate in 18.

Jul-11-17  morfishine: Wow, looks like Black gets mated no matter.

Perhaps thats why Black regurgitated 26...Qd6 so he could quickly head off to happy hour
