Nd6 Kg7 23. e4 Ng8 24. Rd3 f6 {Black's pieces are not well-coordinated for the defense. The bishop at b3 is controlling the a2-g8 diagonal. First White drives the king back into the corner.} 25. Nf5+ Kh8 { Now if we mentally remove the pawn at h7, we can slide the rook from d3 to h3 and deliver mate. Can you see the way to make thathappen?} 26. Qxg6 {The threat of mate at g7 forces Black to capture, but then Rh3+ leads to mate, so he resigned instead.} 1-0
