  nasmichael: After the exchange, White's forces are deep afield and up for a possibly solid attack. "Iron Tigran" strikes again.

Does anyone know of annotation that has been published on this game from move 41?

  nasmichael: Also, this game is similar (up to move 7) to the game Harikrishna v Stein, 2005 HB Foundation Global Chess Challenge games in Minnesota, May 18-22 2005. Hopefully someday this young Harikrishna will have as solid a career as the two battling in the game above.

White's still winning

Apr-07-12  King Death: < syracrophy: But it's not all over after 41...Nxh3 42. Re8+ Kh7 43. Nxf7 Black still has a defensive sequence that avoids mate but doesn't save the game: 43...Rxf3+ 44.Kxf3 g5+ 45.Nxg5 fxg5...>

It may not be over in the sense of mate but 46.Re7 (threatening 47. f6 and Ra7) is more than enough to win after an adjournment. In my opinion though Black resigned without resuming or once his usual time trouble was over.

Apr-08-12  syracrophy: <King Death> Down there just below the diagram, I noted that White's still winning. But it was just an observation for being aware of this kind of "unexpected" swindles that may save the game (not the case in here). Those kind of succesful defensive surprises are so frequent. Just take a look at here! Game Collection: Never Resign!

Awfully superficial -- Black could try 43....g6 44.f6 g5. Though 45.Ne5 threatening f6-f7 and Kxh3 looks decisive then.
