  nd792001: can't say I see the point of this underpromotion on 45...e1=B

  zanshin: I wonder if it's a typo because <46.Qxe1> doesn't make much sense either. Instead, Judit should have played <46.Qe4+!> to win.

  GreenFacedPatzer: Looks a lot like a typo. If Moro inexplicably underpromoted to Bishop, Judit could have just played 46 c8=Q, and had 2 Queens vs a Q + 2 black bishops. Which would have been a remarkable turnaround in a lost game. Instead, she just played 46 Qxe1, exacty as she (probably) would have if Moro promoted to Queen.
Nov-26-09  AnotherNN: Moro could have made this a memorable game with 28. ..Ng4. Then 29.Qc5 Bf8 captures the Queen! CG please note this makes a good Tuesday puzzle.
Dec-21-09  Doug4Chess: I'm inclined to agree that "e1=B" is likely an error in the game record, and that Morozevich actually promoted to a Queen. Interestingly, if he'd played 45. ...f5+ instead of 45....e1=B or =Q, he could have had a quick forced mate: 46. Kh5...Qh3, checkmate; or 46. Kh4....Bf6+ 47. Kh5...Qh3, checkmate.
Nov-08-11  Rupie: 35.Bd4 would also seem like a good move, picking up the queen. Not as nice as AnotherNN's move, though
