Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-13-10  alexrawlings: This is quite a game. I don't think I would have found 37 Rf3 OTB. In the final position, I think Black resigns as he won't be able to avoid mate after 39 Qf7 (eg 39.. Nf6 40 Qe8+ Ng8 41 Qxg8# or 41 Nf7#; 39.. Qd1+ 40 Kg2 and Black again can not avoid mate as in the first line).
Feb-13-10  Jim Bartle: According to Shirov, Forintos resigned after Qxf3.

Shirov's first win against a GM.

Feb-13-10  Kangaroo: More fire on the board after
<38 ... Qh5 39. Qf7 Nf6> will be seen due to <40. Qg8+ Nxg8 41. Nf7#>
