  Peligroso Patzer: What a fine attacking game (especially beginning with 22. Red1) by Pelletier in the last round of this exciting tournament. And what a fine performance in the tournament (3 points in the last 5 rounds) by the underdog local hero.
Aug-03-06  gmgomes: How would this continue?
Maybe 31. Qh6 Qc7 (or Qg8)- to avoid Qg7# 32. Rd8 - if Q takes R, Qg7#
Aug-03-06  MrSpock: 17. .. Ne5?! is interesting, but the advantage tends to white. 22. Qe5! was very strong.

Congratulations Yannick :-)

Aug-03-06  Rocafella: Wouldn't the game continue f7 planning Rd8+?

  Peligroso Patzer: <gmgomes> <Rocafella> 31. f7 would threaten both 32. Rd8+ and 32. Qf6#. Even if Black replies 31. ... Kg7, 32. Rd8 is still crushing.
Apr-20-08  euripides: After 23.Qh6 I suppose Black has 23...Rxg2+ 24.Kf1 Rg1+ 25.Kxg1 Qg3+ 26.Kf1 Bg2+ 27.Ke2 Qf3+ 28.Ke1 Qf1 mate.
