  Everett: White's 30th is an eye-opener.

Suba recommends 7..Ne7, 21.Ne1 and 28..Ne6 as improvements.

Dec-11-10  mastermind7994: I don't really understand 52.Kg5 instead of 52.Kxf5 which seems to me to be winning immediately.
Dec-11-10  mastermind7994: In fact I don't know if 52.Kg5 wins at all.

  Sastre: Yes, 52.Kg5 hxg3 53.hxg3 Ke4 =. I found an alternative score card where Black played 51...Ke5 instead of 51...Kxd5. 52.g5 would be winning in that case:
