Kibitzer's Corner
May-18-05  Ron: Came across this fine game by Jacques Mieses from the Random Game feature. Instead of 34. b3, Mieses has a forced mate, at most, in seven moves, with 34. Re7. Here is a computer checked line:

34. Re7 Qd1+ 35. Kh2 Qg4 36. Rf7+ Ke8 37. Qe5+ Qe6 38. Qxe6+ Kd8 39. Qe7+ Kc8 40. Qxc7 mate

May-18-05  JohnBoy: After 34.b3 Qxa2, doesn't 35.Re8+ Kxe8 36.Qc8+ Ke7 37.Qe6+ do pretty much the same thing?
