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.

  sachistu: Yes <KokeFischer>, 9.Qe2 is a clear typo. See also Chess Informant #44 game #496. I'll submit a correction slip.

I notice there is another game in the database which has the correct score, but an 'odd' tournament description. I'll request <cg admin> to delete that entry after this game has been corrected. Also, I notice the descriptions for the Lvov tournament are not consistent. This is a different task, and requires more research to identify and adjust the description(s).

  sachistu: Oops... I forgot to mention 9.Qc2 was the actual move (as given in the Informant).
