However, something that I think neither player saw was that White has a bishop protecting g3.} 1.Nb3 Ng3+ {Now this doesn't work because if Black's queen can drop back to h6, it won't be mate as the White queen will take it.} 2.hxg3 (2.Bxg3 {keeps White's king cover in one piece}) 2...Qxd3 3.Rd1 Qg6 (3...Qxb3 {was possible} 4.Rxd4 {and Black has an extra pawn}) 4.Rxd4 {White has actually ended a piece ahead!} Qh5+ 5.Kg1 Rfe8 6.g4 Qh4 7.g5 {A discovered attack against the Black queen coming from the side by White's rook!} Bh3 {Black misses the threat hoping that White will take his bishop and open up his own king} 8.Rxh4 {Now Michael is a queen ahead, and he takes little time to finish the game.} Bf5 9.Qc5 b6 10.Qxd5 Be6 11.Qd3 Rac8 12.Bd6 Rcd8 13.Qxh7# 1-0
