Kibitzer's Corner
May-27-07  paladin at large: Extraordinary finish by Chigorin beginning with 44. Bf5. Black has no defense after 51. Kf1 and must lose at least a rook.
Jul-12-09  outplayer: 30...Qc4! is winning. There's no need to push the pawn and white knight is out of play.
Dec-02-14  Knight13: <outplayer: 30...Qc4! is winning. There's no need to push the pawn and white knight is out of play.> Black is already winning, but I disagree with your suggestion. Black is put on the defensive after 31. Be4 Rf6 32. Qg4. The point of 30... g5 was to prevent White's Queen from pressurizing Black's position. For instance, White can't play 32. Qe2 because ... Rxd5 simply wins the pawn as 33. Nxg5 doesn't work due to 33... Qxg5 34. Bxd5 Qxc1+.
