Oct-07-14  zanzibar: Very hard to find the quickest mate at the end of this game, if White had moved 47.Kf4.

There is an M-5 there for Black, can you find it?

Mar-15-17  Gottschalk: I think Milov had lucky.43 Nxg7 was good for white.
Mar-15-17  Pballa: <I think Milov had lucky.43 Nxg7 was good for white.>

43. Rxg7! is far better and white is clearly won after that move. Play could follow 43. Rxg7+ Nxg7 44. Nf6+ Kf7 45. Ng5+ Kxf6 46. Qxf8+ Ke5 47. Bc3+! Kxd5 (if 47. ..Qxc3 48. Qxg7+ and the black queen is lost) 48. Qa8+ Bc6 49. Qg8+ Ne6 50. Qxe6#.

Black's 42nd move was a complete blunder, white missed the follow up.
