  zydeco: With 37....Nf6 black has the very nasty threat of 38....Ng4 followed by 39....Bf2+ and 40....Qxg2#.

White can't meet it directly with 38.Nc3 Ng4 39.Nd1 because black plays 39....Bf2+ anyway and 40.Nxf2 Qxg2#.

I think there's a defense though with 38.h3. Now if 38....Nh5 white has a cute idea: 39.Qe5+. If 39....Kg8 40.Qb8+ Kg7 41.Qc7+ and white trades queens. If 39....Kf7 white has 40.Nd6.

So black plays 38....Bg3. Then 39.Bxa5 Bxf4 40.Bc3 e5 and black's e-pawn is very dangerous but it's still a game.
