Does "God Save The Queen" have a double meaning in Newfoundland?

19.Nf6+!! Nice sacrifice! 19...gxf6 20.Qxg6+ Kh8 (forced since 21.Kf8?? Bh6#) 21.Qxf6+ (very precise--you may as well grab a pawn while you're at it) 21...Kg8 (on 21...Kh7 22.Qh6+ Kg8 23.Qg6+ transposes to the game) 22.Qg6+ followed by winning back material with 23.Rxe8+.

26.Qd6+ is a very practical move (trading pieces when ahead).

Great game Andrew!
