  perfidious: The critical position of this game serves as a classic example of the maxim that the easiest moves to overlook are long retreats.

In the diagrammed position, Monticelli has just played 28.Ra6-a1, giving Black a chance he does not take:

Another case of Capture(s), [Zwischenzug/Intermezzo], Re-capture(s), and THEN what happens next?

Hey blood, here's what Stockfish says:

1) +147.92 (31 ply) 49.Rf6+ Ke4 50.b8=Q Rxe1+ 51.Kf2 Bxf6 52.Kxe1 h6 53.Qb7+ Kf4 54.Qf7 Kf5 55.Ke2 Ke5 56.Qd5+ Kf4 57.Qe6 Ba1 58.Qf7+ Ke4 59.Qb7+ Kf4 60.Qb8+ Kf5 61.Qb1+ Ke6 62.Qxa1 Kf7 63.Qh8 Kg6 64.Qe5 h5 65.Qe6+ Kg7 66.Qe7+ Kg6 67.Qe5 h4 68.Kf1 g4

In other words, create an escape square for the White king at the expense of losing a piece, promote the b-pawn, and harass the Black king with the new queen.

I'm supposed to be at the St. Patty's Day parade. Don't tell Mrs. FTB that you saw me on here, O.K.?
