Game Study on the attack of the Castled King

Here is a game,in keeping with my current studies.where I had a win that evaporated to a loss. My game agains LJQ. I'll take a further look to figure exactly what went wrong I was up by 6 at one point according to Fritz. I liked how this attack built except for the ending.

In this position, WTM, R7g4 wins.

Note to self play this against fritz.

    damn. thats one hell of a game.

    more like these, and, dont worry, you will win many more. its all in the practice, which you know as well as or better than me.

    thank you for the gift of beauty, and often, in nature, it has flaws but no less for it. warmly, dk

    Nice attack! Right at the end, on your last move, 27.Rxg8+ would have forced ...Kxg8 and then 28.Qg6+ forces mate on the next move (...Kh8 is forced, then 29. Qg7# or Qh7#).

    thanks for the encouraging comments. I am enjoying this course of study.

    Thanks Hank. it is sad that I missed that and a sure sign that I need to refresh on my tactical training. It was in a casual internet game and as often had tasks and things in the background needing my attention.
