Nov-25-07  apple pi: The combinational parade from move 10 to 19 is probably the most bizarre sequence of events I've ever seen on the chequered board.
Nov-25-07  baggio: Cestitam Dusko!
Lepe pozdrave iz Maribora in se veliko lepih iger ti zelim! Navijam zate!

Congratulation Dusko!
Best regards from Maribor, Slovenia.
I wish you many beautiful games.
I am your fan!

  tpstar: The primary threat is 43 ... Nh4 & 44 ... Qxg2#. If 43. Kf1 Nh4 44. Bh1 Qh3+ wins the Bh1, as 45. Kg1 Nf3+ 46. Bxf3 exf3 with mate on g2. Or 43. Kh1 Nh4 44. Bf1 Nf3 (threatening 45 ... Qg1#) 45. Bg2 Qh5+/Qh4+ 46. Bh3 Qxh3#. White could try 43. Kf1 Nh4 44. f3 defending the Bg2 but then 44 ... ef 45. Bh1 Qh3+ still wins the Bh1; 46. Kg1 f2+! 47. Kxf2 (47. Rxf2/Bxf2 Qxh1#) Qxh1 and White's King will die on the light squares.
Jul-02-08  apexin: excellent game! looks like 11.Nxg6 was a mistake. white exchanges the queen for ♖♖+♗♗ against ♕+♗+♘.but why not 20...Qxd4 to finish off white faster?
