  Knight13: 37. h5? gives White unnecessary trouble in having to defend the pawn if Black refuses the sacrifice.

On <62. Ke6>: 62... Rc6+ 63. Kd7 Rc1 64. e6 Re1 65. Ra8#; 62... Rc8 63. Rf7+ Ke8 64. Re7+ Rxg6 offers White better chances; 62... Rc8 63. Rf7+ Kg8 64. Re7 Rh8 is equal; 62... Rc8 63. Kd7 Re8 64. Kd6 Rd8+ is equal.

So who is it going to be that turns on a chess engine to check my analysis and (likely) destroy it and act like a god instead of doing the thinking himself? Anybody?
