Apr-08-08  computer chess guy: 32. ♕xd4 was clever, but 32. ♕h4 is a simpler way to win. There might follow the fairly forced sequence .. ♘e2+ 33. ♖xe2 gxh5 34. ♕g5+ ♔h7 35. ♕xh5+ ♕h6 36. ♕xf7+ ♔h8 37. ♘f3

and now White will win material:
37 .. ♕c1+ ♔h7 38. ♕h6 ♘h4! 39. ♖g8 ♕xe6 or
37 .. ♕h7 38. ♕xh7+ ♔xh7 39. f7 ♖c8 40. f8=♘+ ♖x♘ 41. ♘g5+.

Jan-24-11  KokeFischer: There is a typo.

If White plays 9.Qe2 then 9.... Bxc3+ and Black will get the a1-rook.

Surely White played 9.Qd2 or the standard move 9.Qc2.
