Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-23-18  Delboy: A superb demolition of the king's defenses with two bishop sacrifices, beginning with 25. ... Bxg2. If 29. Kxf4 then 29. ... Qxh3 and white's king can only escape the mating net with decisive losses
Sep-23-18  Smothered Mate: <Delboy>

If ​ 29. Kxf4 ​ then
29. ... Qxh3 ​ or ​ 29. ... Re3
and white's king _can't_ escape the mating net,
even with decisive loses:
My Stockfish reports that both black moves mate in 10.

Sep-25-18  Smothered Mate: <Delboy>

Now, at 43 ply, my Stockfish indicates that ​ 29. ... Re3 ​ would ​
mate in 9, whereas ​ 29. ... Qxh3 ​ would just mate in 10.
