  tpstar: The Ruy Lopez Steinitz where Black recaptures ... bxc6 keeping the Two Bishops. This game is a good example of the QN on d5 & the KN on f5 (Nde2/Ng3/Nf5) plus owning the long diagonal toward Black's King with b3 & Bb2. White threatens 31. f5+ Kf7 32. Qh7+ Kxf6 33. Qg6#, and if 30 ... Kf7 31. Qh7+ Kxf6 32. g5+ wins.
