  vonKrolock: <40.♘h5> A very thriling attacking move by Hounie, moreover against a reigning World Champion. It seems that white is better, as 40...♕d8 41.♖d5 ♕e7 42.♖e5 etc looks very good

<40...gxh5> ♗ut after the exchanges, ♖ + ♗ plus the monstrous ♙ c3 will be quite a match for the ♕...

Sep-19-07  Shams: interesting game. I like 43. f5 g5 but white's decision to pitch the e-pawn with 44. Qc5 to prevent ...Rc8 went badly for him.

what about 44.Qd4 instead, meeting ...Rc7 with 45.Qd7 when the critical line might be

45...Rc5 (Rb8 46.Qd5 Rb5 47.Qc4 could also be dangerous for white) 46.Qe8+ Kg7
47.e5 c2
48.f6+ Kg6

but white is one tempo behind:
50.g3 c1=Q

looks like 0-1. Can anyone improve on this?

Jun-07-14  RedShield: 39....Qd6 <So far Black has conducted the difficult game quite convincingly and obtained a winning advantage which he could have exploited either in the endgame by the simple 39... Qxf4 etc or in the middlegame by 39... Qd6 40. e5 Qd3 etc. By making the innocent text move I intended to answer 40.Nh5 by 40... c2 and forgot for a moment the possibility 41.Re5!>

40.Nh5 c2 41.Re5? is countered by the cute 41...Bxf4+ 42.Qxf4 Rxe5 43.Qxe5 gxh5. Instead 41.Nf6+ Qxf6 42.Qxd2 Rxe4 and Black will struggle to convert his pawn advantage.

<40.Nh5! After this strong response Black is forced in order to play for a win, to sacrifice the queen and to calculate exactly the possibilities of the following endgame. All in all, a very interesting struggle!>

40...f5, ...h6, ...Qe6, ...Qd8 (in that order) are all superior to ....gxh5.
