  piltdown man: Saw Paul McCartney last night, in Melbourne, so this is a timely pun!
Dec-06-17  schnarre: ...This was quite a melee!

...Wonder if 52...Rh2 might have worked here (if 53. Rh7+ Rh5, 54.Rxh5+ Kxh5) instead of 52...Rd1.

Dec-06-17  Ironmanth: Great game! RIP GM Ivan B.
Dec-06-17  anonymous17: <schnarre> if 52... Rh2 53. Rf4+ Kh3 (53... Kh5 54. Rh7+) 54. Rf3+ wins the Bishop
