    i blame it being 4 in the morning

    hopefully i did that right.

    First thing...27nxh6??It was 4 in the morning that I blame it on. First candidate I checked was qxf7+(with the idea of rook plus knight mate on h7) but somehow I misvisualized(yes it is a word) after the rook interpolation-thinking the rook would be on f7 instead of g7 allowing the king to get out to g8 and f8...but obviously 27.Qxf7+ Bxf7 28.Rxf7+ Kh8 29.Ngf6 Rg7 30.Rxg7 Qd1+ 31.Kh2 Qxh5 32.Rh7#

    Second thing after b-d4 I saw the exchange sac on e5. N on f6 qon h5 rook on the open file with the other knight coming over just had to mean mate coming at some point(if you aren't a silly fish like I am).

    This was against character david(rated 2000) on dasher.

    One of my better games until I missed the final blow.
