Jun-22-06  Xuorarch: I honestly don't get why White wins. 41.Kxh5 h1=Q+ 42.Kg5 Qg2+ 43.Kf6 Qg6+ 44.Ke5 Qe4+ is at least equal for Black, and this position happens no matter how White runs away from the queen.

On 41.Be5+, there's 41...Kxh6 (41...Kg6? 42.f5+ Rxf5 ((42...Kxh6?? 43.Bf4+ Rg5+ 44.Bxg5#)) 43.Bxh2 and White grabs some queenside pawns) 42.f5 Rg5+!

Jul-29-06  Atking: <Xuorarch: I honestly don't get why White wins.> The point is surely 41.Bf6+ as a) Kg8 42.KxRh5 h1=Q+ 43.Kg6 Qg1+ 44.Bg5 Qb1+ 45.f5 wins so b) Kxh6 (Kg6 also 42.Bg5 (f5 mates) 42. ...RxBg5 43.fxRg5 h1 44.Rg7 mate) 42.Bg5+ RxBg5 (Forced as f5 still mates) 43.fxRg5+ Kg6 44.Re1 easy wins. After the move 40, players got time to see that. A good game from GM Razuvaez.
Jul-29-06  Petrocephalon: Thanks for posting that Atking. I remember the original post from June, and found your line b), but didn't reply because I couldn't find the correct response to 41.Bf6+ Kg8.
