chessdude2: 33. BxP ch! sets up Black's queen for a decoy. 33...QxB 34. R-Q8ch! Now capturing will lose the Queen. 34...K-K2 35. N-B8 ch! Now Black has really lost the Queen.

chessdude2: I actually considered sacs such as B-R7 ch, BxP, N-N5, and Q-R5 before stumbling upon the less obvious B-KB4.

chessdude2: 23. QxP ch! RxQ 24. N-N6 mate Can't believe White missed this in the actual game.
   Oct-01-08 Evans vs Bisguier, 1958 (replies)
chessdude2: Back-rank theme this week, huh? Only difference is that Black’s king needs to pushed in one more square for it to happen, while we must be careful ourselves as our king is already shut in for a back rank mate. Checks are most forcing so… 26. Qa3+ Kg8 27. Bxh7+ ...

chessdude2: Back-rank mate theme, obviously…but the catch here is White is also vulnerable to the back rank mate himself, so care must be taken. 23. Qa7! Now both the Rook and Queen are attacked, and Black cannot save both. The defense is falling apart.
   Sep-20-08 A David vs G Kallai, 1996 (replies)
chessdude2: Got it! Although only the first four moves… 17…R-B1 18. P-R3 NxP! 19. RxN RxN! 20. PxR QxBP The pinning B-KR2 and RxN sac are the themes here.

chessdude2: White to move, material balanced… The potential pin on the 7th rank comes to mind. Hence the idea of clearance becomes vital here… 23. RxN NxR 24. N-Q6ch BxN 25. RxNch B-K2 26. BxR RxB followed by the fork 27. N-B6 forcing the simplification of the position and ...

chessdude2: Hmph, so the result of today's combo was just to win a rook...and I was looking forward to a mate.
   Sep-17-08 Geller vs Novotelnov, 1951 (replies)
chessdude2: 41. B-N6 fails to Q-K3.
   Sep-16-08 Leko vs Radjabov, 2006 (replies)
chessdude2: 47. Q-Q4 ch is more forcing than 47. Q-B7, though I suppose both of them work fine.
