Aug-15-06  Kwesi: I wonder if 48.Nxg3 would win for white?

  Honza Cervenka: <Kwesi: I wonder if 48.Nxg3 would win for white?> No, it would not. If 48.Nxg3, then 48...Rh2+ 49.Re2 (else Kxe8) 49...fxe2 50.Nxe2 Ke6 with probable draw. On the other hand it was definitely better than 48.Re1?? But the simpliest way to draw was 48.Nd6+ Kg7 (48...Kg6 49.Rg8+ Kh7 50.Rxg3 f2 51.Rf3 f1=Q 52.Rxf1 Rxf1 53.Nxb5 is won for white.) 49.Nf5+ Kf7 50.Nd6+ etc.
Jun-19-08  Antiochus: Do what a problem with 46 Kc3?
Apr-23-13  ariel el luchador: creo que CxP es ganadora 1)T7T+ T2R 2)PXT CxP Y el negro no puede perder con 2 peones de más 46)R3A es una jugada prudente que no pierde
Dec-24-14  poorthylacine: For me, ANTIOCHUS, there is no problem with 46.Kc3!
It would simply have won the game!!

  dernier loup de T: To give to a participant player any journalistic, organisation, or any other duties while playing the tournament is unaccountable: so for Staunton (1851), Arnous de Rivičre (1867), Chigorin (1895/6), and so on... Like a nightmare....
