Aug-15-05  foolishmovesss: Can I get a little help here? HJow is this queen check a draw? Looks to me like Bd5+ wins the queen, and the game for white. Any thoughts? Actually it looks like forced mate in 2!
Aug-15-05  Sydro: Maybe it is a score error?

45...Qc6+ surely loses but Qc1+ or Qb1+ is draw.

  kevin86: Could this be a case of double chess blindness? Both players overlook the discovered check and white fears a possible mating net from the queen and bishop. Even the greatest players miss a win now and then.------but this is a doozy!

  tpstar: ChessBase 8.0 confirms this gamescore and result (45. Kh1 Qc6+ 1/2-1/2). It's highly unlikely for both sides to miss that sweet Interference/Discovered Check, so I agree that another move was played leading to the split point. Otherwise Black swindled a draw.

Good pick-up. =)

Aug-16-05  foolishmovesss: Thanks for proving I wasnt seeing things guys. It seems very odd that both sides could miss something that a mere 1615 USCF picked up in about.6830 seconds. My conlusion was the score sheet is wrong, but as you have said, double chess blindness maybee, in time pressure. Thanks for the comments
