Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-22-06  Dr. Funkenstein: I'm curious as to the winning line for white after Nxh4 or f6. Maybe someone with better tactical sense than me could point out what I'm missing

  tpstar: 1) 32 ... Nxh4 33. Ne7+! Qxe7/Rxe7 34. Qh7+ Kf8 35. Qh8#

2) 32 ... f6 33. Qxg6+ Ng7 34. Ne7+! (34. Qh7+ works but is slower) Qxe7/Rxe7 35. Rh8+! Kxh8 36. Qh7#

Aug-22-06  luzhin: And if 32...Rxe5 White carries out his threat: 33.Qh7+ Kf8 34.Qh8+ Nxh8 35.Rxh8 checkmate.
Aug-22-06  booboo23: What about 28. Nxg6..f7xg6
29. Qxg6+ ..Kf8
30. Rh4
which leaves white with great offensive potential imo!!
Aug-22-06  booboo23: revise above post; starts with the 29th move ;)

29. Nxg6..f7xg6
30. Qxg6+ ..Kf8
31. Rh4
which leaves white with great offensice potential imo.

Aug-25-06  dehanne: Suggested pun for this game "Nunn shall pass!"
Sep-03-06  Albertan: < booboo23: revise above post; starts with the 29th move ;)

29. Nxg6..f7xg6
30. Qxg6+ ..Kf8
31. Rh4
which leaves white with great offensice potential imo.?>

In your line Black can blunt the White attack by playing the move 30...Qg7 instead of 30...Kf8. Also as you can see in the variation I have posted below, Black can play 31...Bxc4 and 36...Rxg4 to bring any attack force White had to extinction:

29. Nxg6 fxg6 30. Qxg6+ Qg7 31. Qxf5 Bxc4 32. Bxc4 Qh6 33. Re4 Ra7 34. Rg4+ Rg7 35. Bxa6 Rf8 36. Qe4 Rxg4 37. Qxg4+ Kf7

Nov-03-10  splatty: Wow this is quite a brilliant attack, nice.
Aug-17-21  tibone: Does 27. exf6 win also?
Aug-18-21  sneaky pete: 27.exf6 Nef4

doesn't look good for white.
