Kibitzer's Corner
May-04-07  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Queen looks poor here, but what's the finish?

  WannaBe: Think I'd play 52. Rc7 to pick off the pawn, the queen can't protect the c4 black pawn.
May-04-07  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Yep... I suppose that's the easiest way to win the game. Thanks.
May-04-07  Chicago Chess Man: It's hard to play this position out in your mind, but I feel like winning the c4 pawn is a waste of time. I think 52. Ke6! does the trick, creating mating threats against black's king.

  WannaBe: <Chicago Chess Man> Shredder agrees! My Rc7 is only the 5th choice.

1. (11.04): 52.Ke6 Qg2 53.Rg7 Qxg7 54.Bxg7 Kd8 55.Kd5 Kc7 56.Be5+ Kd7 57.Kc5

2. (5.38): 52.Bd6 Qg2+ 53.Kc5 Qg5+ 54.Kc6 Qg2+ 55.Kb6 Qg1 56.Re7+ Kd8 57.Kc6 Qg2+ 58.Kc5 Qg1

3. (5.38): 52.Kd6 Qf8+ 53.Kc6 Qf1 54.Bd6 Qg2+ 55.Kb6 Qg1 56.Re7+ Kd8 57.Kc6 Qg2+ 58.Kc5 Qg1

4. (5.38): 52.Kc5 Qc1 53.Kxc4

5. (5.33): 52.Rc7 Qh3 53.Bd6 Qg2+ 54.Kc5 Qg5+ 55.Kxc4 Qg8+ 56.Kc5 Qg5+ 57.Kc6 Qg2+ 58.Kb6 Qd5 59.Re7+ Kf8 60.Nf5 Kg8 61.Be5 Qc4 62.Rg7+ Kf8

May-09-07  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Sheesh, 52.Ke6 is more than enough to win easily here. Queen can't answer the mating threat (52...Qh3+? 53.Nf5 and it's all over).

c4 pawn may rest in peace.
