Apr-21-02  ryhon77: great ending!!
May-06-02  Doctor Who: Yes! It took me a minute but now I see, the game would have continued 44. Kh2 Qh3+ 45. Kg1 Nf3 mate
May-06-02  bishop: White should have prevented the black queen from reaching e2 by playing 39.Qc2 even though this would have cost him his b-pawn.
Apr-04-08  Knight13: <bishop: White should have prevented the black queen from reaching e2 by playing 39.Qc2 even though this would have cost him his b-pawn.> In that case 39. Rc2, saving his b-pawn, looks better to me!!
Aug-27-11  sevenseaman: A very tenacious Bird.
Aug-27-11  Moodler: The Bird is the word!

  profK: Bit of a timeless game ... I could see this being played last week !! White certainly let something slip, he had the space and the aggression. Tsk Tsk
Aug-27-11  JohnBoy: I was very impressed with white's play up until about move 36 - maneuvering for the b pawn. But then what happens is very typical of my games. I get what I believe to be a good position and then over-reach. BAM - down-slapped.

  HeMateMe: Great Pun, W.
Aug-27-11  Elo: I haven't check it with an engine yet, but 38.Qc3 looks to be winning. (With the idea of following with Rb2 then Rb3.)
