Aug-03-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Now that's bloody nice attack!
Aug-03-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Oops, now that's first time i'm not 23rd or 59th kibitzer on the GOTD :)
Aug-03-06  EmperorAtahualpa: Well done by White! I guess White was able to calculate all this when he moved 20.Qxd4. The calculation is long but easy, as there are only few variations possible.
Aug-03-06  moiz: 2 pieces down, Seidel had little option but to go all out. Nehl didnt help his own cause by his lack of development and his loss of castling rights

  Peligroso Patzer: <Erdem Yildiz: Can you analyse what should white do to win if black plays 24...Kh5>

Your suggestion of 24. ...Kh5 appears to be an improvement, after which there does not appear to be a forced win for White. He can, however, gain some advantage with 25. Rg3, e.g., 25. ... e5 26. Qe2+ Kh4 27. Qe4+ Kh5 28. Rxg7 Qd7 (according to Fritz, the only move to avoid a forced mate) 29. Qxe5+ Kh4 30. Rxd7 Bxd7 31. Qe7+ Kh5 32. Qxd7 and White, with an extra pawn on each wing has good winning prospects.

Aug-03-06  The17thPawn: <Pelligroso Patzer> - Does 28...Qe6 accomplish the same thing because I don't find the forced mate. Will you give Fritz's line? Appreciate any feedback your willing to provide.

  kevin86: Can e call it "quaint" how white's queen inches up to e5-via d3,e3,e4? The attack is effective as a king hunt-the end,of course, will fall at g7-by the queen,of course. The resulting mate after Kf7 Qg7# is a true epaulette!
Aug-03-06  jahhaj: <The17thPawn> After 28...Qe6 Fritz gives the mating line starting with 29.h3! The idea is to get the queen to f3 or d1 with check, then Black plays Kh4, then g3+ Kxh3 Qh1#. Black can only stop this by giving up more material (which only delays the mate by a few moves).
Aug-03-06  RandomVisitor: Obviously, 19...d4 is bad. 19...Kg8 keeps a Black advantage.
