Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-08-05  mjk: I don't see the win for White, who definitely aimed for the final position. So did Black resign or lose on time -- or am I missing the forced win for White?

  offramp: White seems to have a forced win with 39.Rxf6 Kh3 40.Rxf7 Kxh2 41.Rb7 Bc4 42.Rb4 Bf1 43.Rxa4

I wonder if somehow Rxf6 has been mistranscribed as Rxb3?

39.Rxb3 seems to draw: 39...axb3 40.a4 f5 41.a5 f4 42.a6 b2 43.Kc2 f3 44.a7 f2 45.a8Q b1Q+ 46.Kxb1 f1Q =

I don't think that both sides had a hallucination that the a-pawn queens without trouble. It could have been a loss on time, however.

Aug-08-05  mjk: I think you're right <offramp> and the last move is 39.♖xf6
Aug-08-05  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Well done <offramp>, i wouldn't see that...
