Nov-26-12  The Last Straw: I think 45...cxb3 was just a way of resigning.
Nov-26-12  fokers13: Hmm wouldn't 36..Qe2+ followed by Qa6 be a simpler and safer way of drawing?
Nov-26-12  The Last Straw: Following 35.♕xd8? ♕xd1+ 36.♔b2 ♕d2+! 37.♔a3, instead of 37...♕c1+?? black should have played 37...b5!, when after 38.b4 c4! 39.♕h8+ ♔xh8 40.d8♕+ ♕xd8 there is no defence to ...♕d1-c1# And if white doesn't give away his queen like that, mate will arrive with 39...♕c1#
Nov-26-12  The Last Straw: <fokers13>Your line draws, but black can actually win!
Nov-26-12  fokers13: A nice find <TLS> though 38. Qxc3# in your line is slightly faster:P
Nov-26-12  The Last Straw: <fokers13>Oops, thank you. How silly of me!
