Mar-13-04  chessfected: 55. Kb6? appears to be a mistake. Instead 55.c7! e2 56. c8Q e1Q offered better prospects. Or 55..Kd7 56. Kb6 e2 57. Kb7 e1Q 58.c8Q+ Ke7
Dec-31-04  bobo7up: Not really...If 55.c7 then 55...Kd7 56.Kb6 Kc8 and white is lost.

  GrahamClayton: 40.♔f1?? is a blunder. After 40.♔f2 ♖b1 41. ♖e5 Black can resign. White goes from being a piece up to being a piece down in the space of 4 moves.

Many predictable moves. Lost some points through mouse slips!

Also thought there might be more combinations....loved the Knight sac, but thought 32..Rea8 ought to have been tried....

From move 43 on: Sure helps to have a free roving queen in the endgame!
