Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-16-11  Juninho: no one commented? completely astonishing!
Cause that was the first occasion when Judit won a whole GM tournament at man categories.

Anyway, in this game she had a bit of luck. Dely "Sakkélet 1994" said it was an amazing game of Judit, but in the meantime asking in the bottom of the paper: "What was the final mistake from black?" And after that, 2 months ago apologises his inexcatly summary. The truth, San segundo played very well until he blundered 34..Be5, instead of 34.., Bxf2!! immediately winning. Of course it s difficult to find it, even behind the board, but incredible that Dely hasn't found without time control/pressure. It shows, what a difficult and unclear game was that.

  Everett: <Juninho> 34..Bxf2 is not possible. Wonder what you meant...

<32..Rxd2 33.Rxd2 Qf4+ 34.Kh1 Qxd2 35.a7> was worth a look, though it seems Black is still losing.

Jun-19-20  irontigran: Judith was very lucky as she was completely busted after the blunder 34. Be3?? (a7 was required). There follows ...Rxf2+! 35. Bxf2 Be5+! 36. Kg1 Qg5+ 37. Kf1 Qg2+ 38. Ke1 Bc3+ 39. Rd2 Qh1+ 40. Bg1 f2+ with a total massacre.
