Zonal Tactics

A position from todays round of the Oceania Zonal. White to play and win.

(Yes I know the board design is different. An artifact of my new computer system. I'll try and change it back)

The Smerdon-Morris game. I saw Ian's live comments on this position. I think it would have taken a stroke of genius to see this mate.

Bill and I have noticed that there is a little mistake in Ian's variation. After 34. h3 Kh5 35 g4 Kh6 the maximum white can get is a draw. Instead white should play 34.Qg6..., 35.g3... and mate next move.
