  FSR: I saw this game in Chess Life & Review magazine many years ago, but had never played it over. Wild stuff!
May-27-12  DarthStapler: What happens if white plays 32. Kxf3?
Oct-10-13  Cemoblanca: <DarthStapler> 32.Kxf3?? allows 32...Qxd3+!! and mate soon, for example: 33.Kg4 Qe2# or 33.Kg2 Qe2+ 34.Nf2 is the only move, because the Black B controls the a7-g1 diagonal and therefore its also mate after 34...Qxf2#
