Jun-06-12  shalgo: An interesting king-hunt. Black's king goes from the kingside to c7 and back again. Even then, Black seems OK until he falls apart with 40...Rc4?! and 41...Qg4??

40...Rc6 would have been safer, preventing 41.R1d6, and 41...Qf5 would have allowed Black to meet 42.Rd8 with 42...Rxd8. In the game line, 42...Rxd8 would be met with 43.Rxd8+ Kh7 44.Qxe5 (or Qf6) with mate to follow. On f5, the queen covers the e5 and f6 squares and Black is safe.
