Apr-22-04  J.A. Topfke: Any endgame experts out there care to comment on this? Can Huebner hold the position with best play or is Kramnik just winning after 19.Qxe5? Of course the computer consistently evaluates the position with a plus one because of White's extra pawn, but I certainly don't trust the machine's evaluation in this position.
Apr-22-04  fred lennox: No expert. 28...Qxc3 I feel frees black's game more than the text and prevents weakening the pawn structure.

After 45...Qb4?, the Black King is caught into a mating net. The question is: is there anything else for Black at this moment?

It seems that 45...Qc5 gives some hopes to resist as, from this square, the Black Queen keeps an eye on the f2 pawn. Thus the variation actually played would not work. 45...Qc5 46.hxg5 fxg5 47.Rad2 Rg6 48.Qh8+ Rh7 49.R2d7 Qxf2+, Black draws.

That means that after 45...Qc5, Kramnik should have find something else. Not easy to see what...

Apr-27-07  laskersteinitz: The tactic at the end there is such a beauty. I hope it makes it as a puzzle of the day someday so that as many people as possible are exposed to its magic. 48.? is puzzle 22 in Valeri Beim's "Lessons in Chess Strategy."

<after 45...Qc5, Kramnik should have find something else.> On 45...Qc5 46. Rd5 Qe7 47. hxg5+ fxg5 48. f4! looks strong for White. Black's kingside pawn cover will get wiped out. I'm not sure if it's enough for White to win, though.
