  mertangili: <WhiteRook48> i think 96...Rg3 could be the way to go for black in your line as the white pawn is now lost and black should win
Nov-23-09  RandomVisitor: What about 92.Kd4?
Nov-23-09  Samagonka: but why so long????

  JohnBoy: <Sama> - figuring out a winning strategy is VERY difficult here. You don't have to look far in the endgame pages to find R v. N draws between top GMs.
Nov-23-09  RandomVisitor: The whole 49...h1=N concept seems busted after 51.e6! or 51.Ne7! when it appears that white is winning. Even after 50...Nh5 51.Qe3 Rc8 52.e6 white has winning chances.
Nov-23-09  lopium: Doesn't 94.Rh7+ saves the game for at least 7 moves?
Nov-23-09  WhiteRook48: see <mertangili>'s post above

  kevin86: An unusual hard ending for black,but he does pull it out.
Nov-23-09  SPINK: very pretty game (and pun), also the technique at the end was nice

  Jimfromprovidence: There are a lot of strange swings in play in this game, which make it fun to study.

As <RV> mentioned, 51 Rh2?? instead of 51 Ne7 (seeing Ng6+) cost white the match.

Also, 51 e6 wins, (seeing 51...Rxe6 52 Ra8+).

On the other side, black loses most of his advantage with 54..Nxe5 instead of saving himself a piece with either 54...Rh4 or below, 54...g5.

  Once: It's chess Jim, but not as we know it. What a wonderfully odd game!
Nov-23-09  GreenFacedPatzer: The fifth knight is pretty, but doesn't 49 ... h8=Q achieve the same or better end more simply? After

49 ... h8=Q
50 Rxh8 Nxh8+

Black is up a whole rook, and generally better. Isn't this to be preferred to the game line, which gives black only a R vs N advantage?

Nov-23-09  eric the Baptist: talk about a hard fight! lotta guys now would have settled for a draw at about move 30.
Nov-23-09  GreenFacedPatzer: Ha! From <RandomVisitor>'s enormous second post, it looks like Rybka agrees with me on the boring queen-promotion idea.
Nov-23-09  RandomVisitor: After 92.Kd4! Rg1 93.Rf7 it is difficult for black to make any progress.

Sep-04-15  jerseybob: Since there's no mate in the corner, what about 50..Nf5(instead of Nd7)to get the knights back on defense and in some lines threaten a queen swap?
Nov-29-20  jerseybob: <jerseybob: Since there's no mate in the corner, what about 50..Nf5(instead of Nd7)to get the knights back on defense and in some lines threaten a queen swap?> Never mind! That gives up the Ne3 fork. Instead, 50..Nh5, as suggested by both Rybka and Stockfish, looks interesting. But as <GreenFacedPatzer> asked long ago, is the under-promotion on move 49 the best? Both engines think not.
