Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-16-22  jrredfield: Black managed to crawl its way to a win despite missing the much better move 28. ..Nxh3! which wins decisively. 29. Re3 Rxe3 30. Qxe3 Be5+ 31. Kh1 Nf4+ 32. Rh2 Qxh2 33. Kxh2 Nxd5 34. Qxe5+ Pxe5 and Black coasts to victory. I also considered 28. ..Rh2 to win the queen which really leads to a very close game, which makes that move considerably inferior to 28. ..Nxh3 but is still better than the text move.
Jul-16-22  Brenin: My idea was 28 ... Nxh3, and if 29 Rxh3 then 29 ... Be5+ 30 Kg2 Qg4+ 31 Kf2 Qxh3, and Black is ahead by 2P, passed and connected, surely enough for a win.
Jul-16-22  Granny O Doul: Also disappointing is that Black missed 33...Qe1+, as in a famous FSR game.
Jul-16-22  BxChess: <Granny O Doul:> Well-spotted. 33...Qe1+ is such a nice move.
Jul-16-22  mel gibson: I got this one wrong.
I thought 28...Re2+ but Stockfish is only giving a score of -1.5 for White.

Stockfish 15 says:

28... Nxh3

(28. .. Nxh3 (♘f4xh3 ♔h2-g2 ♕h4-g4+
♖f3-g3 ♘h3-f4+ ♔g2-f2 ♕g4-h4 ♖c2-c3 ♗g7-e5 ♖c3-e3 ♘f4-h5 ♔f2-e1 ♘h5xg3 ♔e1-d1 ♘g3-f1 ♖e3-e4 ♕h4xe4 ♗d5xe4 ♘f1xd2 ♔d1xd2 ♗e5-f4+ ♔d2-d3 b7-b6 ♔d3-d4 ♖e8-e5 ♔d4-d3 a6-a5 c4-c5 d6xc5 ♗e4-b7 h7-h5 ♔d3-c4 ♔h8-g7 ♔c4-b5 c5-c4+ ♔b5xc4 g6-g5 b3-b4 a5xb4 ♔c4xb4 ♔g7-g6 ♔b4-b3 g5-g4 a2-a3 ♔g6-g5 ♗b7-c8 ♖e5-c5 ♗c8-b7 h5-h4 a3-a4 h4-h3) +13.01/37 394)

score for Black +13.01 depth 37.

If I force Stockfish to play 28...Be5
that ply is not as strong:

28. Rc2 Be5
29. Kg1

(29. Kg1 (♔h2-g1 ♘f4xh3+ ♔g1-f1

score for White -4.27 depth 42.

Jul-16-22  hdcc: Dublan down.
Jul-16-22  agb2002: White threatens Bxb7.

The bishop can check the white king from e5. This suggests Be5 and Nxh3.

In the case of 28... Nxh3:

A) 29.Rxh3 Be5+ 30.Kg2 Qg5+, followed by the capture of the rook, recovers material and exposes the white king even more.

B) 29.Kg2 Qg4+ 30.Rg3 (30.Kf(h)1 Qg1#; 30.Kh2 Be5+ wins) 30... Nf4+ 31.Kf2 (31.Kh2 Qh4+ wins) 31... Qh4 must be winning. For example, 32.Qd1 Rf8 33.Qg4 Nxd5+ wins decisive material.

C) 29.Re3 Be5+ and the attack looks winning. For example, 30.Rxe5 Rxe5 wins material and keeps the attack. Or 30.Kg2 Qg4+ 31.Kf1 Rf8+ 32.Rf3 Rxf3+ 33.Bxf3 Qxf3+ 34.Ke1 Bg3+ wins decisive material

  scormus: I thought I'd got this with my 28 ... Be5, followed by the next 2 text moves. Never thought .... Nxh3 was the best.
Jul-16-22  Boerboel Guy: I got 28....Nxh3 ! :-)
Jul-16-22  parch: Choice of 28...Be5, ....Re2, and ...N:h3

28...N:h3 29.R:h3 Be5+ 30.Kg2 Qg4+ 31.Kf2 Q:h3

Jul-16-22  TheaN: Partial credit for this at least, as I noticed 28....Re2+? 29.Qxe2 Nxe2 30.Rxe2 must be inferior to the other options, and 28....Be5!? is good but not best, as after <28....Nxh3! 29.Rxh3 Be5+> it comes with tempo and <30.Kg2 Qg4+ -+> recovers material with much more crushing options. It's a shame that in the text, Black missed 33....Qe1+! #3.
Jul-16-22  stst: thinking of Be5 to pin, instantly or after the N-sac of 28. .... Nxh3, but White can ignore the N temporarily and Re3 will block. 28..... Be5 pins and W left in a lurch.
Jul-16-22  stst: too blind to see why (following the text moves) 33.... Qe1+ is winning, as Be5 is blocking R@e8 (KxR then.) Even after a dis+ Black is not winning instantly, as Kf1 or Kd1 are easy escapes.
Jul-17-22  newzild: <stst>

33...Qe1+ 34. Kxe1 Bc3+ (double check) followed by 35...Re1#

  FSR: <Granny O Doul> Indeed!

  FSR: Good Tuesday-Wednesday puzzle after 33.Qg2. <Granny O Doul> pointed out the move, which Black sadly missed.
