Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-23-06  notyetagm: With 21 ♘xe5?? the White f3-knight leaves behind both the d2- and g5-squares.

This tactical oversight allows Black to win on the spot by playing the -wicked- <ZWISCHENZUG> 21 ... ♕g5!, the ol' ♘f4-♕g5 trick. White cannot adequately parry the twin threats of 22 ... ♕xg2# and 22 ... ♘h3+ followed by 23 ... ♕x♕. This tactical trick is a great example of the principle that <any piece that can give check (Black f4-knight) makes a great discoverer>.

The <ZWISCHENZUG> 21 ... ♕g5! must have been a terrible surprise for White, who expected nothing more than the obvious recapture 21 ... dxe5.

Dec-23-06  syracrophy: This is just the same as in the following example:

1.♖xd7! ♕xd7 2.♕g4! g6 <Or other moves that try to protect the mate> 3.♘xh6+ and 4.♕xd7

Dec-23-06  notyetagm: <syracrophy> Yes, but your version is a little more advanced in that a preliminary sacrifice (1 ♖x♗d7! ♕x♖d7?) is needed to create an undefended Black queen on the h3-c8 diagonal of the White f5-knight.
Jul-19-08  The Ninth Pawn: From Game Collection: The Ninth Pawn's Chess Course :

In Dolmatov vs Yusupov, 1982 , no less than FOUR tactical elements are used: the DECOY (20. ... ♘d7x♙e5) the PIN (to the g2-pawn) the MATE THREAT (21. ... ♕f6-g5) and the DISCOVERY (after 22. ♘e5-g4? ♘f4x♙h3+)
