Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-04-04  nullandvoid: A mystery why Black accepted the draw. He wins after 17. ...Qh4! a)18.g3 Bxg3 19.hxg3 Qxg3+ 20.Kh1 Rf2!
b)18.h3 Qg3 and Qh2#
Oct-04-04  notyetagm: Damn, pretty amazing miss. Loose squares around the W king at f2 and h2 and 17 ... ♕h4! hits them both (<DOUBLE ATTACK>).

  FSR: Yes indeed. White's best try after 17...Qh4! is 18.g3 Bxg3 19.Re2, but Black is crushing after 19...Bf2+ 20.Kh1 Nf6. Adams was much lower rated (2208 vs. Zatonskih's 2445), and must only have seen the perpetual that would result after 17...Bxh2+? 18.Kxh2 Qh4+. Probably Zatonskih saw that she was busted and offered the draw in the hope that Adams wouldn't look too deeply into the position.

  FSR: Could be a Wednesday-Thursday puzzle after 17.Bxe4. (Black failed to solve it.)
