Apr-26-06  notyetagm: 88 ... ♖xh3+! is a crushing blow that forces mate next move.

Since the White g2-pawn must block the g-file and the White h2-king must keep the Black a1-queen out of h1, no White piece actually covers h3.

88 ... ♖xh3+! and then

89 ♔xh3 ♕h1#
89 gxh3 ♕g1#

Apr-26-06  notyetagm: 88 ... ♖xh3+! is a really nasty <DISCOVERED PIN> down the g-file (89 gxh3 ♕g1#, a pinning theme).

Discovered attacks which create pins are dangerous, dangerous, dangerous.

Apr-26-06  notyetagm: <DISCOVERED PIN>: Use the masking piece (Black g3-rook) to take what the newly pinned piece (White g2-pawn) no longer defends (h3-square, 88 ... ♖xh3+!).
