  HeMateMe: Cute pun. You have to be familiar with American rules football. <Unnecessary Roughness> is a common penalty called by referees in this game, when a player is hit after the whistle is blown, which ends a football play.
Sep-25-12  sofouuk: white has already passed up earlier ways to win (shove the a-pawn anytime from move 37) but this is where the game slides from easy win to possible defeat

after 46 exd5! Rxd5?? allows Qh7+, and after Qxd5 the passed pawns guarantee the win. if Qf7 (should be best) 47 Qc2 Rxd5 48 Rad1, the rooks come off and the queen ending should be winning (at least, it can't be losing)

Sep-25-12  Abdel Irada: Just incredible: In the final position, with nothing on the board except a rook and a few pawns apiece, and kings near the center, White can't avoid mate.
Sep-25-12  Alphastar: It's an interesting exercise to try to find out with what other placement of white's king the position would be lost for white. Maybe h3?
Sep-25-12  newzild: The selfmate took me completely by surprise. After 52. Kxe4 it seems that White is doomed.
Sep-25-12  nnnnnnnn: 54 Ra1-h1 was a draw because now white threatens mate and black must draw or lose!

  kevin86: white's position looks good ...except he will be mated VERY SHORTLY!
Sep-25-12  scormus: OMG! That is astonishing, especially in a correspondance game and a World Championship too. I suppose on move 54 W had no idea of his danger.

  FSR: A very surprising finish. Looking at position at move 54, I would never have imagined that White's king was toast.
