  Ron: Bologan's combination starts with 36 Re7! and end with Black resigning on move 46.
Nov-25-09  Eyal: This is a great example of the advantage that the presence of opposite color bishops can give the attacking side when the heavy pieces are still on the board - in the final combination, starting with 36.Re7!, Black is completely helpless on the light squares. Geometrically speaking, the whole maneuver of setting up the queen/bishop battery by Be4-Qd3-Bf5-Be6-Ba2-Bb1, as well as the way in which the bishop moves like a pendulum between the b1-h7 and a2-g8 diagonals at the end, are very nice.

Indeed, two beautiful tactical shots by Bologan, 36 ♖e1-e7! <INTERFERENCE> and 46 ♕g7xh6+! <DECOY: TRAPPED>.

This magnificent effort by Bologan has to be the best <OPPOSITE-COLORED BISHOP ATTACK> I have ever seen.

As stated above, Bologan's use of the light-squared bishop along the a2-g8 and b1-h7 diagonals was just *stupendous*.

Nov-30-09  PAWNTOEFOUR: wow!...this game was great!!...eyal and notyetagm thanks for explaining why i liked this game so much!
Nov-30-09  Shams: lovely use of the long light square diagonals! what a clinic.
