  perfidious: White's 45th is a most imaginative and elegant shot.
Nov-03-16  SeanAzarin: Black could have prolonged his resistance with 60... B-B3.

60... K-B1?? blundered away the Bishop and the game immediately.

Nov-03-16  SeanAzarin: Although by that point Black was pretty much screwed regardless. White is threatening 61 Q-R6 ch.
Nov-03-16  AlicesKnight: <perfidious: White's 45th is a most imaginative and elegant shot.> Agreed; the Rh8+ pin from behind caps it nicely. And yes, after 60....Bb3, 61.Qh6+ Kg8; 62.Kf6 and the Q protects f4 meaning that the mate can only be delayed by giving up the R.
