Nov-24-06  Open Defence: erm you mean 37Qxf6! ?
Nov-24-06  syracrophy: 37.♕xf6+!!<37...Bxf6 38.Bxf6 and 39.Rh8# is unavoidable>
Nov-24-06  dehanne: Seems a pretty obvious combo. It doesn't need any "!", let alone "!!".

  technical draw: <dehane> I don't think it's that obvious. I give it one !

Everything is obvious when you are not playing OTB and your clock is not running.

Nov-24-06  notyetagm: <dehanne: Seems a pretty obvious combo. It doesn't need any "!", let alone "!!".>

And it was so obvious that his 2352-rated opponent completely missed it. Typically players rated near IM-strength (2400) do not miss "obvious" combos.

Nov-24-06  dehanne: Well, maybe it's in the eye of the beholder... I recently made a similar Queen sacrifice which I thought was quite obvious.. if I knew how to put a board position in a kibitz, I'd show it.
Dec-16-06  sixfeetunder: <Typically players rated near IM-strength (2400) do not miss "obvious" combos>Well the black players weak side is tactics, otherwise he is a good player and a future hope.

  OBIT: At move 36, Black was probably worried about Bh6, after which he can't effectively play ...e6; for example 36...Rc7 37. Bh6 e6 38. Qxf6+ Kg8 39. Bxg7 Rxg7 40. dxe6. So, he plays 36...e6 before White plays Bh6, except White plays Qxf6 anyway. :)
May-01-21  fisayo123: 37. Qxf6+!! Hello
