May-31-06  martinshortsays: What is the significance of 102.Qb7?
May-31-06  Hongkonger: I wondered that too. Was it just a way of finishing things very quickly, or is there a mistake in the game record?
May-31-06  pulsar: i think it's a losing player just giving a move.
Jun-01-06  babakova: When I saw this game I couldnt understand why Adams didnt play 94.Kf8 --I mean the only checks black has are to the back rank and then simply queens and blocks, and if Qf3 then Qf6 forces the exchange of queens... I dont get it...
Jun-01-06  borisbadenoff: <martinshortsays: What is the significance of 102.Qb7?> Because black will lose anyway. Mate in 13.

<babakova: When I saw this game I couldnt understand why Adams didnt play 94.Kf8 --I mean the only checks black has are to the back rank and then simply queens and blocks, and if Qf3 then Qf6 forces the exchange of queens... I dont get it...>

Maybe he just didn't see it because he was pissed that black didn't resign in the clearly lost position.

94. Kf7 is mate in 7
94. Kf8 is mate in 9

but also 92. Ke8 would be mate in 7

Mar-07-16  QueensideCastler: According Lomonosov tablebases white mates in 26.
