  whiteshark: Strange or poor game? <47.Be6!> is winning.

  beatgiant: Yes, but an unbelievable save after the very natural looking 47. Rxd7? Rc8!

LOL, thanks, but I don't have enough time for this hobby now. So, I usually look at positions where engines are less useful.

Back to the game, Black's opening combining ...c5 and ...f5 looks like it creates a lot of weak points. And it looks close to winning for White by move 11.

  Calli: As <whiteshark> and <beatgiant> have pointed out, Lebedev failed to convert an overwhelming position. After the suggested 47.Be6 the game might have continued 47...Qf4 48.Bxd7 Qxh2+ 49.Kf1 Rf8 50.Qxb6 Rxf3+ 51.Ke1 1-0
