  kevin86: A strange game-to say the least! White's knight captures a queen by a fork-but another queen-to-be proves too much for the old,faithful steed.

  patzer2: Indeed, Black gives up his Knight with 93...Kg4!! to secure a won endgame that finally reduces to a single passed pawn against a hapless Knight.

the combination to which <Kevin86> refers is 98...e1=Q, where Black captures this e-file passed and promoted pawn with a Fork, but is then unable to capture the other passer on the h-file.

Jul-13-08  4tmac: WHITE got too cute on 98. N-f4? Simply K-c4 or K-c5 was a draw by bringing the KING into the fray to support the KNIGHT on f2 or f3 to sacrifice itself for the h pawn. (in some lines the N sacs for the e pawn and the K collects the h pawn) This line wins the e pawn outright but the R pawn-always tough for a N-cannot be stopped
Jan-30-10  drdos7: Actually 93...Kg4 only draws says Rybka 3.
According to Rybka 3 93...Na3+! is the winning move.
