White is in dire straits - he is two pieces down and threatened with mate in a few moves by ...Qh3+

  sfm: This is really a swindle, and the sly rat (Black(burne)) had guaranteed planned it all, ever since 41.Rf1. Instead of 49.-,Rd3?? White should have played 49.-,Qh3+ or 49.-,Qxd3 and White is entitled to resigning.
Mar-26-19  Straclonoor: <White should have played 49.-,Qh3+ or 49.-,Qxd3 and White is entitled to resigning.>

49....Qh3+ - mate in seven
49....Qxd3 - mate in 16
