Dec-03-02  Vilkacis: If 53...Be2 then 54. Kh4. Must mate follow?
Dec-04-02  Sylvester: I have it set up, you put in 53...Be2 to prevent Rh6+ Kg6 Qh7mate.
Dec-04-02  Sylvester: 53...Be2 54. Kh4 and black has no move to prevent 55. Qc5 e5 56. Qc8mate. Black has few legal moves on 54...the bishop and queen can move, but not prevent the mate, the only pawn move is e5 which would allow the mate in one move by Qd7.
