Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-10-03  ughaibu: Amazing final position but is it really lost?
Jan-10-03  Cyphelium: No it's not. It's a draw.

The position is probably wrong. On you can find the game with the move 52. Rh3 instead of 52. Kh3, which makes a lot more sense.

Jan-10-03  ughaibu: Thanks, it certainly looked like a draw to me.
Apr-07-03  ughaibu: Cyphelium: I have the finish as you gave it also from another source. 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.d3 Bc5 5.Nc3 d6 6.Be3 Bb6 7.0-0 Be6 8.Bb3 h6 9.Qd2 Ba5 10.Qc1 Bxc3 11.bxc3 d5 12.Ba4 Qd6 13.Qb2 0-0 14.Qxb7 Bd7 15.Bxc6 Bxc6 16.Qa6 dxe4 17.Nxe5 Qxe5 18.Qxc6 Ng4 19.g3 Nxe3 20.fxe3 exd3 21.cxd3 Qxe3+ 22.Rf2 Qb6 23.Qc4 Rae8 24.Raf1 Re6 25.d4 Qc6 26.Qd3 f6 27.Rf3 Rfe8 28.d5 Qc5+ 29.Qd4 Qxd4+ 30.cxd4 Ra6 31.R1f2 Re1+ 32.Kg2 Rc1 33.Rb3 Kf7 34.Rb8 Ra5 35.Rd8 Rc4 36.Rd7+ Kg6 37.d6 cxd6 38.Rxd6 Rca4 39.h4 Ra3 40.Rf3 Rxa2+ 41.Rf2 Rxf2+ 42.Kxf2 Kf5 43.h5 Ke4 44.Rd7 Rg5 45.Rxa7 Kxd4 46.Ra4+ Kd3 47.Rh4 Rf5+ 48.Kg2 Ke3 49.Rg4 Rg5 50.Rh4 f5 51.Kh2 Rg4 52.Rh3 Kf3 0-1
Apr-07-03  Cyphelium:, perhaps you should change this game according to the score given by ughaibu?
