  ROADDOG: 21.Qh2 offering up the white Queen. Whats the continuation if Black takes with 21...Bxh2? I'm not seeing it.

  kingfu: Roaddog, I have a whole game collection with games like these. Bxh2 sounds not too bad. Bishop takes Queen sounds a lot better! Does white have some sort of pawn storm on the black king? It does not look like it to me. There is also the threat of ...b7xe4 followed by c7xc3. I am thinking that the result was reported wrong. This happens frequently and confuses the masses! It should be 0-1!!

  ROADDOG: <kingfu> Thank you, thought I might be losing it. I also saw the threat continuation...Bxe4, Bxe4 followed by Qxc3 winning for black. I tried playing through the pawn storm idea as well, without engine help, and all ideas I had lead to an advantage for black. So I think you are correct, 0-1. I checked out your game collections. If you get a chance, see if this game doesnt belong as well. Dmitry Svetushkin vs Peter Acs. Thx

  kingfu: More possibilities: Black could have lost on time. We never get this type of information. Or maybe Ekaterina got some bad Sushi and hallucinated a loss. Or Black resigned because it was rumored to be Equinox by Nostradamus. You can never have enough data!
