  Whitehat1963: Nicely-timed sacrifice.
Jan-13-05  GreenDayGuy: In the endgame, the pawns can really over power both minor pieces, just like in this game.
Jul-14-06  avemuri57: why not 51...h2+ 52Kxh2 f2 53 Bxf2 d2

Automatic queen

Aug-13-09  patzer of patzers: <avemuri57> is right about move 61, Fritz 6 after a while thinks h2+ is mate in 34 (not necessarily right, but at least close enough), while Ke4 is a mere -5.84. Of course it doesn't matter at this point. Maybe Dokhoian didn't really care about the last move...?
Aug-13-09  patzer of patzers: Since nobody's said anything, I'll give Fritz 6's new evaluation and close it (promise!): h2+ is mate in 40 while Ke4 is -6.34.
