  Phony Benoni: Philip W. Sergeant, in his collection of Charousek's games, notes that instead of merely winning with <60...Qe5+> Black could have announced mate in 5. Do you see it?

  vonKrolock: <Phony B.> Why not a mate in three in this way: <60...♕e5+! 61.♔f8 ♕g5!! 62.♔e8 ♕d8#>

  Benzol: <Phony Benoni> I can't say that I do. Was he looking at something like 60...♕g6 61.♔e7 ♕d6+ 62.♔e8 ♕d8# or 60...♕g6 61.♔f8 ♔d6 62.♔e8 ♕h5 63.♔d8 ( 63.♔f8 ♕h8# ) 63...♕h8+ 64.f8=anything ♕xf8#? Otherwise what did he mean?

  Phony Benoni: <Benzol> That's the line Sergeant gave, though as <vonKrolock> points out it's kind of irrelevant. Amazing what blind spots can do.

  whiteshark: If Albin had only moved <53.Kd4!> it would have been a draw to this day.
