Jun-30-14  Gottschalk: 24.Rd1! Threatening 25.Ng6+ and 26.Rd8+
and Qe5+ is decisive.
If Bd7 Nxf7+ it's ok.Very nice combination.

  al wazir: What was wrong with 16...Nxh5 ?
Sep-03-19  Ironmanth: Tremendous game! Thanks, chessgames!
Sep-03-19  Knightenprise: A hall-of-fame pun, surely!! Always better when it responds one way or another to the game's events rather than the only connection being the players' names or whatever.

As for the game, after 18.Qh5 for the sacrificed piece White has only two pieces beyond the first rank (Q+N) - of the remainder, only the f1-rook can lay a claim to being somewhat developed, and it's not even on e1 ready for a rook lift! And still, it all works and the attack crashes through...

Of course, the reason everything does work is that the supposedly "undeveloped" c1-bishop is already bearing in on the attack - it's not just rooks (by opening the a- or h-file) you can activate without first moving them!

Exactly. Agree 100%.

Sep-04-19  TheTamale: Love this game. Black looks OK to me through move 12. Is 12) ...Ng6 where he starts to blow it? Maybe I'm missing something.
