Nov-12-12  Jazzer32: What an incredible game!!!
Nov-13-12  Shams: <Jazzer32> I too find this game impressive. Gunina is only 23, and is the reigning European Women's Champion. I look for her to get another GM norm in 2013.

If 36...Kh6?? 37.Rf5 forces mate.

Nov-13-12  Shams: Another fine Gunina game:
V Gunina vs A Bodnaruk, 2009
Nov-13-12  rilkefan: Stockfish reckons that after 36...Kf8 white should take a perpetual with Qh7 and f5. And 35...Qd6 (...Qe6 is a bit worse because of Re3 in the Nxh5 line) is -2. Here Nxh5 loses because the black king is ok on d7 and d5 is held.

32...Qe6 was -2; ...Rha8 was just losing to Rxf6, Qxf6+, Nxh5, Rg3+. Presumably both players were in Zeitnot.
