Feb-04-05  Knezh: How was black able to win this?
Feb-04-05  Saruman: 43.♕h4+ f6 44.♕h7+ ♔d8 45.♕h8+ ♘e8 , and black has built his own hut; and is still a piece up. That could be one way if your question was how black would win in the final position.

  OBIT: I think <Knezh> was asking how Black was able to win a game that appeared to start rather badly for him. After 9. O-O!?, Kengis probably avoided 9...Nc2 because of 10. g4, but 10...Na6 was a definite admission that the opening did not go as planned. 12...Bg4 looked like a desperation move, but he managed to attain a position with decent prospects by castling by hand.

Kengis hung on during the trench warfare that followed, then got major help when his opponent dropped a piece (27...Bc3??). In short, a typical Alekhine's win.
