Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-01-05  Knight13: I think 41. Kh1 is better because the pinned e3 rook really irritated White after move 41.
Jul-01-05  peabody88: After 41.Kh1 black has 41... Qxd5 pinning the tower again and attacking the Queen. 42.Qxd5 Bxd5 43.Be2 Bxf3 44.Bxf3 Rxb6 leaves an easy engame for black. 42.Qh8+ Rg8 43.Qf6 Rc1 44.Kg1 Qc5+ 45.Rf2 Bc4 and White is lost. 42.Bb5+ Ke7 and there are no more checks to delay black.

I didn't see thoes lines.
Jul-02-05  Whitehat1963: Fritz sure has improved in the last 122 years!
May-04-18  Straclonoor: White had real chances to win this game. Especially after 29 moves.

Analysis by Stockfish 020518 64 POPCNT:

+- (3.19): 30.Be2 h4 31.Rac1 Rg7 32.Qxb7 hxg3 33.fxg3 Kf8 34.Qb6 Qf4 35.Qf2 Qxf2+ 36.Kxf2 Ke7 37.c4 Kd6 38.Bf3 f5 39.c5+ Rxc5 40.Rxc5 Kxc5 41.Rxe5 Rg8 42.Re7 Kd6 43.Rh7 Rc8 44.Rxh3 Rc2+ 45.Ke1 Rb2 46.Rh6+ Kc5 47.Ra6 Rxh2 48.Ra7 Kd6 49.Rxa5 Ra2 50.Ra6+ Kc5 51.d6 Rb2 52.Be2 Rc2 53.Ra7 Kxd6 54.a5 Ra2

May-07-18  Straclonoor: Only 47.Qe5+? missed a clear win after 47.e7 Re6 (47....Rf6? 48.e8N+! Kb8 49. Nxf6 Qxf6 50.Qe8+ etc.) 48.e8Q.

  Honza Cervenka: Instead of 23...Nxf5(?) it was better to play 23...Bxf5! 24.exf5 Qh6! (24...f6? 25.Ne4 +-) 25.Rxe5+ Kd7 26.Re4 Rae8 27.Qc1 Rxe4 28.Nxe4 Rc8 29.Bf1 Nxf5 with equal game. In the text 24...Qh6 is better than 24...f6(?) but already insufficient for 25.Rxe5+ Kd8 26.Re6!! Qf8 (other moves lead to quick disaster, for example 26...fxe6 27.Qxd6 Qf8 28.Qxb6+ Kc8 29.dxe6 Be8 30.Ne4 Qe7 31.Rd1 Qc7 32.Qd4 b6 33.Nd6+ Kb8 34.Qxf4 +- etc., or 26...Nxe6 27.dxe6 Qf8 28.exd7 d5 29.Qxf8+ Rxf8 30.Bxd5 Kxd7 31.Bxb7 Rad8 32.Nxh5 +-) 27.Re4 h4 28.Rxf4 hxg3 29.fxg3 with two extra Pawns and huge advantage of white. Instead of 29.Qxb6 it was worth to consider 29.Bd3 Qxd3 30. Qxd7+ etc.
