Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-16-11  meppi: 6.Rxh5 is a good move giving a game long initiative.

and 24. Nb5+ is a great sacrifice.

Even if black declines the knight and keeps the c-file closed, they are still lost.

EG: 24. Kc8
25. Qe6+ - Kb8
26. Qxd6+ - Ka8
27. Qb8+ - Rxb8
28. Nc7#

is only one possible variation.

In fact it seems that blacks game is very difficult if not lost, as early as move 17

it is a good game by one of my fav players welling, the rook sacrifice in the opening for a pawn+initiative is surely one to remember
