Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-07-05  SneechLatke: Nice finish. 94...Kg7 95.Ng6! Kxh7 96.Nh4 when white picks up the f-pawn with a trivial win.
Apr-21-07  waddayaplay: Judging from's bios, neither player was even IM at the time the game was played. Inaccuracies include:

35.Ng5?! is inferior to 35.Qf7!

42.Kf3? drops a pawn

Also interesting would be 82.Nxf5!? instead of 82.h5

Oct-20-09  sfm: > 35.Ng5?! is inferior to 35.Qf7!

Tried to figure out what you mean. Did you mean "37.Ng5?! is inferior to 37.Qe7!"

> 42.Kf3? drops a pawn

Did you try to see how it would work if you tried to keep it?

42.Kf3!! let go of the pawn to allow the white king to take a central position, which wins the game.
