Jun-18-17  Whitehat1963: What happens if 49...Qxg4? Doesn't that open up the chance for perpetual check?
Premium Chessgames Member
  drleper: The perpetual can be avoided with a tricky knight move: 49...Qxg4 50.Qxf6 Qd1+ 51.Ne1!

and after 51...Qxe1+ 52.Kh2 there are no more checks, with the queen also out of place to defend against the upcoming mate.

Also possible would be to swap the queens and win the c pawn: 49...Qxg4 50.Qxg4 Nxg4 51.Re8+ Kh7 52.Rc8 Ng7 53.Rxc3

But there's more wriggling for black here.

  OhioChessFan: 49...Qxg4 50. Qxg4+ Nxg4 51. Re8+ and then Rc8 and the c Pawn is indefensible. R+N and 3 Pawns vs N+N and 2 Pawns should be a win.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: <drieper> we apparently cross posted. I didn't look for the line you suggested, but both should be pretty straight forward wins.
Premium Chessgames Member
  drleper: <OhioChessFan> No problem. In a game I'd almost definitely go for 50.Qxg4+, but Stockfish's 50.Qxf6 is the swiftest end.
