All Out Kingside Attack

The Torre Attack is, well, an attacking setup for the white player. If black missteps, there can be dire consequences.

Below is a 45+45 game that I played today in the DHLC Slow Swiss #8 that demonstrates white's attacking possibilities.

Though I blundered the the exchange late in the game, I still had plenty of attack left in the position with the h pawn on the seventh rank and the black king fending for himself--and, this time at least, I was able to convert to a win.
