Jun-20-06  OneArmedScissor: White can't stop black's b pawn... or so it seems. have to take a look at this later.
Jun-20-06  EmperorAtahualpa: Here is Crafty's analysis of the final position:

33...Bd8 34.Rc2 Nb3 35.Rc8 Kf7 36.Nd6+ Ke6 37.Nxe8 Kxd7 38.Rxd8+ Kxd8 39.Nxf6 Nc5 40.Nxd5 Nxd3 41.a5

(eval. -1.26; depth 15ply; 268M nodes)

Jun-24-06  Katana: I found the remaining moves in the Dutch Newspaper Het Parool: 33...Re6! 34.Rd1 Nb3 35.Rb1 Nc5 36.Nd4 Rd6 37.Rxb4 Nxd7 and white resigned.

How come these moves weren't added to the moves list at

Sep-19-06  patzer2: Black's demolition combination with 25...Bxh3!! wins a pawn with decisive advantage.

Note that the reply 27. Nxf3 is refuted by 27...Qxg3+! with 28...Qxf3 to follow.
