  Honza Cervenka: <whats wrong with 66Kf3??> Nothing special is wrong with this move but black is still better. 66.Kf3 Qh3+ 67.Ke2 <(forced)> 67...Qh5+ 68.Kd2 <(once again the only move)> 68...Qg5+ 69.Ke2 <(69.Kd1? Kg2 70.Qe4+ Kg3 71.Qd3+ Kh2 72.Qf1 Qg4+ 73.Kd2 Qd4+ and black wins.)> 69...Qe7+ 70.Kd3 Kg2 71.Qg4+ Kf1 72.Qd1+ Qe1 73.Qh5 <(73.Qg4 Qe5 )> 73...Qb1+ 74.Ke3 Qb3+ 75.Kd2 Kg2 76.Qg6+ Qg3 77.Qe4+ Qf3 78.Qg6+ Kh2 79.Qh6 Kg1 80.Qg7+ <(the only good check as after 80...Qg2 white can pin the f-Pawn with 81.Qd4)> 80...Kf1 81.Qg5 <(what else?)> 81...Qe2+ 82.Kc3 Qe4 83.Kd2 Qd4+ 84.Kc2 Ke2 85.Qh5+ Ke1 86.Qe8+ Kf1 87.d6 <(there are no better moves)> 87...Qc5+ 88.Kb3 Qxd6 with huge advantage in Queen endgame. Black Pawn on f2 practically secures the win for black, although there is still some play ahead.
Feb-10-06  MF Noob: i suppose it does just delay the inevitable i didn't see those checks that black had after the move
Aug-06-08  randzo: i think that after Ra7?instead of Ra4 clearly up a qeenside pawn and winning and iam sure that there were lots of winning lines for white in this game
