Aug-30-04  wall: 32...Rf8 may be the losing move. Perhaps 32...h5. And better than 33.Rxe6! is 33.Rc7!! since 33...Qxc7 34.Nh6 mate! And if 33...Qd2 34.Rc2! and the queen is lost or it is mate next move.
Aug-30-04  clocked: no, 32...h5 is losing too. Black is in trouble from 29...Rxc6. 29...Qe4 and black has the advantage
Jun-26-07  ToTheDeath: Sloppy game by both players. 28... Rxb5! is better, and 42... Qxd3 43. exd3 Kd4 would have given drawing chances.
