Aug-23-06  waddayaplay: The position after 24.Qa4 was in a book of chess exercises. I guessed black's best move was ..c5. Qe8!? with the idea f6 and Qh5 I could never have imagined.
Apr-04-08  Knight13: <Qe8!? with the idea f6 and Qh5 I could never have imagined.> He was just getting that set up first and then play ...c5. ...Qh5 gives d5 pawn support after ...c5.

  zydeco: 41....Nc4 is strong. White fights for a draw with 42.Rc5 a5! 43.Kh3! and if 43.....axb4 44.Nd4 Rc3 45.Nb5 with a draw repetition. (Taimanov's analysis)
