  whiteshark: ... and drawzzzzzzzzz
Oct-05-09  DCP23: The score is incorrect. Otherwise the final position is a win for White. In fact, 43.a3 isn't even the only move that wins for White!! Can you spot the other winning move? ;)

  pawn to QB4: <43.a3 isn't even the only move that wins for White!! Can you spot the other winning move?> My guess is that the score is correct; Wang probably failed to see 43.a3 as he thought a5 was that pawn's only legal move. The lack of imagination of some GMs: how did he manage that draw with Carlsen?
Oct-05-09  DCP23: <pawn to QB4: Wang probably failed to see 43.a3 as he thought a5 was that pawn's only legal move.>

Yep, seems like it. Either that or I had the position flipped upside-down when analysing :)

Oct-05-09  Karpova: <DCP23> did you know the Fahrni story: Hans Fahrni ?
Oct-05-09  DCP23: <Karpova> Didn't know it, thanks for the link!
