  Chessical: <25.Qc4?> overlooks Burn's Rook sacrifiece to invade the K-side with his Queen; <25. Rc1> =

<31...e3!> would have won immediately, 32. Qf1 e2 33. Qxf3 e1=Q+ 34. Kg2 Ne3+

Burn also had the surprising and winning <40...b5!> after which the White Queen is obliged to move away from defending critical squares.

Apr-30-11  paul1959: <Chessical> 31...e3! would have won immediatly.

Then Burns`s Qg3+ Qf3+ sequence deserves a !! since it allows him to play the same 33...e3! while pocketing two moves from the time control....

41... b5 42 Qe4 is still probably a win for Black but why complicate? Burns continuation leads by force to a basic won ending or mate as after 43 Qc8+ Kf7+ 44 Qd7+ or Qxb7+ Black plays Ne7 and there are no more checks.
