I think the thing of beauty here is the subtle king move. I wouldn't call the combination "instane" ... nice post :D
very nice analysis
[COMMENT DELETED...CUZ I'M A BOZO AT CUT N PASTE]
Nicely done! Btw there was another way of winning too (on your 2nd move):
3...g4! maybe? Point being that Rh1 can be met with Bh4 and if Rxh4, Qxh4, gxh4, Black can get the queen back with Rf8. I'm likely missing something though
Edit: I see you have it covered in your analysis but it seems to me that after 3..g4 4. Ne3 Rf8 5. Rh1+ Bh4 Black escapes after some dicey moments. 6. Nf5+ Kg5 7. gxh4+ Kf4 and the discovered check is useless due to the Rook on f8. But again...I'm probably missing something obvious
I think ...Qf8 might be a problem in your 4. Ne3 line. 3. Ne3 however looks really devastating.
Very nice mating attack, although it can be stopped by 1. ... Kf8 (according to computer analysis, but if you have something different to say, go ahead).
padman, Qf8 DOES actually stop the mating attack. So clearly, Kf2 was an innacuracy. And Chessgod as noted in the original analysis, 1. ...Kf8 does stop checkmate, but White wins a pawn for nothing, and then follows Rg6!.
Oh come on. Way to post just the graphic chess.com. I just spent like 10 minutes writing why Rg6! wins immediately for White.
After 1... Kf8 2 Qe6 looks very strong.
I just spent like 10 minutes writing why Rg6! wins immediately for White.
lol...hm, seems to be a bit of a contradiction here...
Qe1+ followed by Qd6 blocks g4
Again 2 Qe6 looks pretty strong too.
