  GrahamClayton: Morgado considered this his best ever CC game.

20.♔h1! unpinning both the d4-knight and e3-bishop is an inspired move.

Jan-14-15  vasja: I do not see a win for white after 27...b1=Q. What am I missing?
Jan-14-15  disasterion: <vasja> It's not immediately obvious. I think Qf8+ is the key: 27...b1=Q 28.Qf8+ Kc7 29.Rc5+

and now if 29...Nxc5, 30.Qd6+ Kc8 31.Qc8#

while 29...Kb6 30.Rxb1+ picks up both of black's queens.
