Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-17-04  rclb: Fantastic game! Queen versus two minor pieces and a fierce attack, then queen versus 3 minor pieces.
Mar-16-12  sofouuk: plenty of minor inaccuracies (no surprise there!) on both sides - 26 ... a5, for example, would have kept black firmly in charge as white's apparent threats are illusory. after 32 Rxb8 the three pieces are better than the queen, but 49 Rxe7+? was a tactic too far (49 Rf4 and 50 Nb5 would have maintained the advantage)

... hats off to both players, tho

It seems that if White can stop Black from playing ...Qa4 and creating an outside passed pawn, then he has good chances of winning.
