  GrahamClayton: 35. ♔h2 and 36. ♕xe1 allows White to attack the exposed Black king and drive it to a position where Black can only avoid checkmate by exchanging into a lost K + P endgame.
Sep-03-18  Retireborn: <GrahamClayton> I wonder if the endgame after 38...Qf7 39.Qxf7+ Kxf7 is really lost for Black, though? I know that Euwe once analyzed out a similar endgame to a win for White, but is it really forced?
Sep-03-18  Granny O Doul: The pawn ending is a routine loss requiring no particular precision on White's part.
