Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-11-05  mjk: Stean gives 17.♗xe4! dxe4 18.♘d2 ♗f5 19.bxc6 bxc6 20.♘e2 with threats of ♕xc6 or ♘g3.
Nov-30-16  Smothered Mate: ​
I notice that white could've repeated with ​ ​ ​ 40. Kg3 ​ .

According to the Lomonosov tablebases:

The 50-move rule does not affect this analysis, since ​
all relevant mates are in less than 50 after the most recent ​
[capture or pawn-push] that was before the relevant move.

61. ... Kxh5 ​ (played) is winning.

62. ... g4 ​ just draws; Rd5! was the only winning move.

63. f6 ​ and ​ 65. Kf3 ​ (both played) ​
were both only-drawing-moves.
