Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-16-09  luzhin: Cramling misses it first time around but 24.Rf3 is pretty. After 24...Bxf3 25.gxf3 the g file is opened for the remaining rook to deliver mate.
Mar-17-09  Chicago Chess Man: I don't think she so much as missed it as was trying to gain time on her clock while calculating.
Mar-17-09  Granny O Doul: Yes, it does not count as a "miss" if one can still create the position by force.

  beenthere240: I admire 19. Qh6!(instead of Qxh7+?).
Mar-17-09  WhiteRook48: 26 Kh1 is puzzling
Mar-18-09  Chicago Chess Man: <WhiteRook48> Why is 26 Kh1 puzzling? It's necessary so that white can bring his rook to g1 and force mate.
Mar-18-09  WhiteRook48: oh, it's just puzzling because you don't see a king move causing resignation every day
Jul-12-13  whiteshark: Here's a tricky question for you all: How do you win after <18...Kf8>?
