Sep-04-16  abuzic: <131.Qg5> was a mistake. Both players were using increment time only; Black's <137...Qf3+> was a mistake: 137...Ke1 138.Qb5+ e2 139.Qb1+ e1N! was winning.

  luzhin: Your variation contains various illegal moves.I think you were trying to say that 134...Qf3+ was a mistake. But Black was still winning after that. The big error was 137...Qd2, instead of 137...Kf1+, which is winning. It is true that 134...Kf1! 135.Qa1+ Qe1 136.Qa2 e2 137.Qa7 Qf2 138.Qa1+ e1=N! was the quickest win. What's amazing is that in this variation 138...e1=Q? allows a perpetual check after 139.Qa6+ with White's Queen using the checking squares f6, a1, and a6. Remarkable dance of the three Queens!

With best defense, the only winning line is that which leads to promoting to N!
