|Jul-18-08|| ||chancho: Taking the Bishop is a no go for white.
(33.Kxh2 Qxh4+ 34.Kg1 Qf2+ 35.Kh1 Rh8+)
But how does black win after 33.Kh1?
|Jul-18-08|| ||myschkin: seems to be hopeless also:
33...Qxh4 34.Re6+ Kxe6 35.Qc4+ Ke7 36.Bh3 Qxh3 37.Qe2 Bg3+ 38.Kg1 Rf1+ 39.Qxf1 Qh2#
|Jul-18-08|| ||chancho: <myschkin> What about 33...Qxh4 34.Qb7+ Ke8 35.Rc8+|
|Jul-18-08|| ||lopium: I don't see this at all. For me white wins here or get at least a draw! 33.Kh1, if Qxh4, then 34.Qb7+ which leads to a win or a draw, I can't see. But in any case, not 34.Re6+.|
|Jul-18-08|| ||myschkin: Black can interfere with the following:
34...Bc7+ 35.Bh3 Qxh3+ 36.Kg1 Qf1#
|Jul-18-08|| ||lopium: <Black can interfere with the following:|
34...Bc7+ 35.Bh3 Qxh3+ 36.Kg1 Qf1#> Wow, I didn't see the discovered check in order to block a check!
|Jul-18-08|| ||chancho: Alright, thanks <myschkin>.|
|Jul-18-08|| ||myschkin: You're both right that it is like dancing on a razor blade in the end!|
|Jul-18-08|| ||chancho: 34...Bc7+ 35.Kg1 Qh2# is also possible.|

This was great finish by mr Y.
|Jul-31-12|| ||perfidious: Mutual time shortage reared its head in this fierce battle.|
The position before Yedidia's final move is worth a puzzle.
