May-25-21  graphvariety: 22... Qxb2 looks suicidal, but Black may already be busted - what does he do about the threat of Nd5? If 22... Bxd3 23. Nd5 Nb5 24. Nxb6 Nxd4 25. Nxa8. So 22... Rxe3 looks forced: if 23. Nd5!? Re1+ 24. Bf1 Rxf1+ 25. Kxf1 Qa6+ 26. Kg1 Nb5, or 23. Qxe3? Re8, or 23. fxe3 Be6. But the mating attack at the end is very nice!

  fredthebear: Yes <graphvariety> 23.Nd5 looms large, which was motivation for 22...Qxb2 to pin the Nc3.

White's combinational forced king walk into the knight sacrifice 31.Ne2+ is a pretty finish which took a bit of calculation. Super Nezh was indeed a chess assassin! Speaking of knights, the alternative 30.Nxe4 threatening 31.Nxf6# is also overwhelming.

25...Rf8 defending the Nf7 would have slowed White down some.

May-27-21  andrewjsacks: Lovely and geometric conclusion.

  perfidious: Helluva way to treat a lady, though the conclusion was nice.

  keypusher: Lord, I'd love to play a move like White's 32nd once in my life.

Of course, the way you get to do that is by playing lots of wonderful moves earlier in the game.
