Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-27-04  ruylopez900: A nice game. 17...f5 looks risky, but I can't find a way for White to punish Black. An ending to this game (goven by Larsen) could possibly be:

41.g6 d3+ 42.cxd3 cxd3+ 43.♔e1 e2 44.♖g1 e3 45.g7 ♖f2 46.g8=♕ d2#

Oct-18-10  ForeverYoung: this finish is very spectacular with the way the pawns would have delivered mate to the white king. this had to be calculated very closely as the white "g" or "h" pawn would have been impossible to stop.
