It looks like he just didn't even play properly..
bah, i didn't realise you were 2113 when i commented in your other post. Still, a beautiful display and a clinical attack.
Good fun game. I love the Yugoslav and do well with it. And black seemed to do things I have not seen and I doubt are sound. Rifling through the moves, I felt you missed 18 Nd5 before Rxh5. Seems overwhelming regardless of where black puts his queen.
I should note that you played well.
well Escapist after Nd5 Qf8 and black comes out a lot better than just Rxh5. 18... Qf8 loses a knight but, gxh5 just loses to the attack in the game with Bxf7. I just find it interesting that the sacrifice works because of the knight forks, the knight is actually doing more on c3 than it would be doing on d5 anyway.
19. Nd5 wins on the spot, though.
19. Nd5 Re6 and black again puts up more resistance
Very nice attack!
Not wanting to beat a dead horse, and I realize we all have our own styles but 18 Nd5 merits another peek.
with mate next move, and 19...Qxh6 20Rxh6 permits 21 Rdh1 etc.
