  computer chess guy: 32. Qxd4 was clever, but 32. Qh4 is a simpler way to win. There might follow the fairly forced sequence .. Ne2+ 33. Rxe2 gxh5 34. Qg5+ Kh7 35. Qxh5+ Qh6 36. Qxf7+ Kh8 37. Nf3

and now White will win material:
37 .. Qc1+ Kh7 38. Qh6 Nh4! 39. Rg8 Qxe6 or
37 .. Qh7 38. Qxh7+ Kxh7 39. f7 Rc8 40. f8=N+ RxN 41. Ng5+.

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.
