  lost in space: A very strange game. Black (Junge) moved with his KING nearly every time between move 18 and 29. Finally a position with a small edge for Black was reached:

Instead moving his KING now a last time to g7 to a save place with winning chances, Junge obviously thought he had blundered away the game in one move: 35. Ra1? 36. Rxh5++ (Junge resigned here) 36...Kxh5??? Qg5#

But 36...Kg7 37. Qh6+ Kf6

is completely even according to the silicon monster, named

Rybka 3, d=21:

0,00; 38. Qg5
0,00; 38. c5
0,00; 38. f4

Thanks god, resigning in an even (or won) postion happens not only to me.

Aug-18-13  alikudo: I think that Junge saw the continuation:
36...Kg7 37. Qh6+ Kf6 38. Rf5 Ke7 39. Qg5 Ke8 40. c5 Nd7 41. Bc4, defending a2, and then h5. The idea is that still the K remains in e8, if black moves Ra2, white changes an then moves the K to g column. Probably it is possible 40. h5 instead of c5.
