    I personally doubt he's been cheating. Look at some of his games/rating.

    I can't find the thread for the life of me. Here's the game.

    Game 3259298

    Apparently there was one move that saved mate somewhere, at least that's what crafty says. I don't think anyone my level could possibly have found it though.

    easier to say that after I lost eh?.. who wants to trade a queen for a bishop.

    I have a queen sac in the making although I'm waiting to see if my opponent proves it unsound... I will post it if I mate!

    BTW: Very nice combo there!

    I like your combination but if I had been playing you, I would have done something quite different at move 25 as follows:

    25w N x f5
    25b B x f2
    26w N-e7+
    26b K-?
    27w N x c8
    this would leave you the choice of taking the knight or saving the bishop. The bishop could play with the rooks a bit but in the end, if played properly, I believe it would have ended up swapping a queen for 2 rooks, which I don't consider as a bad trade. If that had been done, your brilliant parlay would never have occurred. What do you think?

    true...I missed that combo. All in all, plenty of hindsight available for everyone.

    Jolly nice combo. Makes it all worth it, like finding the sweet spot in a golf drive.

    Here's a recent and interesting Queen sacrifice of mine at 19. against the Sicilian. Interesting on a number of levels. One that I was going to lose minor material anyway and the sacrifice was compensated for by gaining a rook back and a strong attack. On the other level, it's interesting in showing how one mustn't become distracted by counter-threats of which he had plenty. Simply put - if I've got a mate in one and he's got a mate in two, then I win. Ultimately it was unsound for my only hope was to gain the draw and I threw material in the direction of that cause. In the end he played one weak move while offering the draw and lost instead.

    I've actually won three games recently with the draw in sight to last move blunders.

    According to fritz 8, after the sac, whites only mistake was 27.Bc3...

    27. Bc8 scores -1.08 after Re1
