Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-21-07  krippp: I was puzzled by the ending:

Sure, there seems to be a few obvious winning "themes" for Black, but after thinking for several minutes I came to the conclusion that none of them can lead to victory.

Then I checked it with an engine - white is in fact WINNING after <32...Rxf4??>.

This lead me to the conclusion that

a) White ran out of time

or more probably:

b) The game score is incorrect, and the Rook sac was probably preceded by <32...Qg4+>, after which it is indeed winning if White plays anything else than <Kf1>.

Jun-05-12  Shams: The game score is probably correct, as Davies himself relies upon it here:

Davies annotates: <<32...Rxf4!>: "White has had enough. 33.Bxf4 is answered by 33...Re2 threatening both mate and the queen.">

But <krippp> is correct, White is just winning in all these lines. Mutual chess blindness over the board, but Davies' article is from 2007.

  Robed.Bishop: Hmm, Davies' annotations, with this score sheet, don't make sense. 33...Re2 is suicide, not victory.

32...Qg4+ makes more sense and helps explain Davies' annotations.
