At c. 19mins, after Qc7, doesn't white have a forced mate after Rh8+ Kxg7 Qh6#?

Thanks for the nice and extensive analysis!

That would be a yes. :) Looks like Black had to play ...f6 instead of ...Qc7, and as I surmised while flailing around looking for a Black reply, he's simply lost.

In 19:50 you missed a simple answer of white against the black's Qc7. It is Rh8+(instead of gxf8=Q+ and Nf3) and mate next, Qh6++.

Yet another quiet positional struggle... oh wait, this is Dennis' video, forget that comment!

Fun game. I remember looking at this a long time ago but didn't nearly give it as much thought at that time. It is truly worthwhile to revisit some of the old gems. Thanks!

Great analysis as ever Dennis, but I think you missed a mate in one!

At 20.59, after white's Kf1 black isn't "still in trouble here" because he has Bd3++! 8)
