  WannaBe: Very beautiful game. Excellent work by Mikhail Krasenkow.
Oct-28-05  azaris: I wonder if there was a way to prolong the battle. 47. f5 was maybe not so good, but after 48. Qf4 there are lots of funny stalemate traps:

48. Qf4 Rd3! (< 48...Rcc3 49. Kh4 Kg6 [< 49...Rxf3 50. Qxh6+! Kg8 51. Qg5+ = >] 50. Qg3+ Kh7 51. Kh5 Rb4 [51...Rxf3 52. h4! =] 52. h4 Rg4 53. Qf2 = >) 49. Qh4 Rcc3 50. Qf6+ Kg8 51. Kh4 Rxf3 52. Qg6+! Kf8 53. Qxh6+ Ke7 54. Qf6+ Ke8 55. Qh8+ Kd7 56. Qf8 Rxh3+ 57. Kg5 Kc6 58. Kf6

and the position of the kings makes me think this could be drawn with good defense. Any ideas?
