  luzhin: Fabi missed a neat Q sac and draw (which counts as win for Black in Armageddon) with 49...Nef5! 50.Bxd1 Ng3+ 51.Kh2 Nf1+ 52.Kh1 Ng3+ and so on.

That is a good find Luzhin.

Actually here.

49...Nef5 50.Bxd1 Ng3+ mate next move with the other Knight, (with or without the pawn on f4) that would have been a cool finish.

Recalling Fabs missing the Queen sac v Wes So Caruana vs W So, 2019 and now this one, that is 3 pts he gave away.

This one I may have seen in Blitz, I have had that Knight perpetual before with just one Knight, but the Wes So one would have passed me by.

  HeMateMe: But does white have to play BxQ? what if White just plays Q-b2 and keeps driving the b pawn towards the 8th rank?

  luzhin: If White plays 50.Qb2 as you suggest, then Ng3+ 51.Kh2 Qxe2 wins for Black.
