Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-15-20  paulthebox: A much better defence was 38.Nxd3 (not mentioned by Mokry in Informator 37) Rxd3 39.Rxd3 Bxd3+ 40.Rxd3 Qh2 (going for the pawn endgame, with the heavy pieces on, blacks cramped king always gives white sufficient counterplay) 41.Rc3 Rxc3 42.Qxc3 Qg1+ 43.Qc1 Qxc1+ 44. Kxc1 Kf8 45.Kd2 Ke7 46.Ke3 Kf6 47.Kxe4 Kg5 48.Ke5 Kxg4 49.fxg6 fxg6 50.Kf6 g5 51.Kg7 Kf3 52.Kxh7 g4 53.Kg7 g3 54.h7 g2 55.h8Q g1Q+ and black still has winning chances due to his advanced pawns.
