Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-27-04  wall: Perhaps 36.Bg2 is better than 36.gxh6. In the game 36...f5! is good since 37.h7 Kg7 38.Qg3 e5! should win. In the game 37...e5! is good since 37...fxe4 38.Bxe4+ Ke7 39.Qg3 could draw for White.
Dec-07-05  Saruman: <wall> 36.Bg2 Qc2 37.Ke3 Rd3+ 38.Kf4 Qc1+ this is the point, and white is forced to sac material with Nd2 and will eventually lose.

If 39.Ke5 (Kg4 h5#) Rd5+ and Rf5+ winning the queen.

Jul-06-10  portales: 27.Nf6, white win
Apr-18-11  Damianx: i don,t know does 2 bishops and 4 pawns beat 1 bishop and 7 pawns 3/3 and 4/1 on the other wing
