  Benzol: 50...♕xb3, 51.♖g7+ ♔h8, 52.♕e5 ♕b8, 53.♖c7+ ♔g8, 54.♕g7# is one way.

50...♖xf7, 51.♕d8#

Is there anything else worth trying?

  Calli: <Benzol> Yes, I think you are correct on the ending. Black is Albert Hodges or Albert Beauregard Hodges.
Dec-15-10  GrahamClayton: The Black knight on f6 is en prise for 13 moves before being captured.

  Mateo: 39...Qa1+?? is a blunder. If he plays 39...Rf8! Black is fine. The White Bishop is attacked (so that if White plays exf6, Black can answer Qxd3), while after the move actually played, White answers 40.Bb1! and Black cannot defend his Knight has White threatens Qxg7+.
