Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-04-04  Shadout Mapes: Is this a perpetual?
Jul-04-04  Chesswinna: I believe so.
Jul-05-04  acirce: On ..Qg2 White may escape the first perpetual with Nf3 but after ..Qxg4 Kd5 ..Qxf3 Kxc4 ..d5+ Kb4 ..Qd3 there is no way to escape a new perp.
Jul-05-04  karlzen: What a pity...I thought Nd2 covering the checks was obvious. (I mean what did white think? Black just gave the h-pawn without a hidden trap somewhere?) 37.Qc8+ Kg7 38.Qd8! was the way to go. Say, 38...Nc4 39.g5 hxg5 40.Qxg5+ Kf8 41.h6 Ke8 42.Qg4 threatening Ng5 or 38...Nb7 39.Qb8 when black should probably try a waiting move followed by Qxa7 Qc7, Qa8 Nd8 and white is faced with some technical difficulties, although, this time with a pawn to boot.
