Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-30-04  vonKrolock: Riumin's preliminary measures in his 22th to 24th moves were superfluous - 21...Ne6 was, virtually, prelude enough for the coup-de-grĂ¢ce; say, after 22.Qb2, a sudden 22...Bxh3!!, whith the devastating idea of Qg4-Bf4-Ng5, for instance: 23.Nxh3 Qg4 24.Kh2 Bf4! 25.Qxb7 Rf8 26.gxf4 exf4! whith Ng5 to follow.
