Aug-19-04  patzer2: Black plays well in punishing White's awkward development, but could have won faster with 35...Nc7! 36. Ba4 (36. Bd7 Qxb2) 36...Qxb2 .
Aug-19-04  polonius: Couldn't black also have won faster with 52.Qd2 ?
Aug-19-04  patzer2: <polonius> Good catch! Black has a much easier and quicker mate after 52...Qd2! 53. Ne2 Qxe2 54. Bf2 Qxf2 55. Rg1 f5 56. f4 Kh8 57. h3 Qg3 58. Rf1 Qxg2#

To be fair, 52...Nxf3 is also a decisive winning move, but obviously takes longer. It would seem Black saw the more difficult win first, and then did not look (or didn't have time to look) for the better alternative.
