Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-25-08  ToTheDeath: Why did he resign? There is no win for Black after 39.Nh4 (39...Rg4 Kg1! ) f3 40.Qe3. White may even be better.
Jul-21-12  sreeskamp: you'r right, Fritz gives indeed a loss for black
Jul-21-12  master of defence: Why it´s a loss for black? After 39.Nh4 Be7 40.Kg1 Bxh4 41.Rxg7 Rxg7+ 42.Kh2 Bg4 and black doesn´t seems lost yet. Or I missed something?
Jul-21-12  Calli: <master of defence> on 39.Nh4 Be7 40.Qxh5+ wins easily. Another one for Sunk collection.
Jul-21-12  aliejin: probably, a score error,
not uncommon in casual games,
(simultaneously, in this case)
Dec-06-15  MasterMito: 39.Nh4 and draw (engine)
