Oct-12-06  outplayer: What is the purpose of 45...Ne7?
Oct-14-06  Albertan: Hi outplayer,in regards to your question about the move 45...Ne7, if you look at the position after this move White's f-pawn is threatened by 46...Rxf2. So White has to save the pawn by playing 47.Rd2. With the knight on e7 Black could now play 47...Nd5 (threatening Nc3+). So White would have to play 48.Kb2 to end the possibility of the rook fork tactic succeeding and after 48...Rxg2 Black is winning.

  fredthebear: 36...Kf6 carefully avoids a draw. If instead the Black king munches the g6-pawn, White can escape impending defeat with perpetual check by the rooks.
