Jan-19-05  jmcd2002: I know this is C-group, but 40. Qe2?? Yikes...
Jan-19-05  Saruman: <jmcd2002> Very humiliating indeed since black could choose to mate with Bf6 next move or just take the Queen!
Jan-19-05  jmcd2002: Looking at it again, there doesn't seem to be much better at move 40 (maybe 40. Qg5?). At what point, then could white have saved himself?
Jan-19-05  aw1988: What about 40. Bxe6 fxe6 41. Qd7+?

  tpstar: 40. Bxe6 Nf4+ 41. Kh4 Bf6+ bags the Queen = 42. Qg5+ Bxg5+ 43. Kxg5 Nxe6+. 40. Qg5 probably gives the best swindling chances, trying for some play after 40 ... Qxf2 41. Nh5+ Kg8 42. Qd8+ Nf8 43. Qg5+ Kh8 or else 40 ... Qxa3 41. Bb1 Bxf2. Those tripled Pawns look horrible.
Jan-19-05  aw1988: Well spotted.
