Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-06-07  DevastatioN: How is this not a win or at least a draw for white after Qe6+ Qc7 Qxe7+, taking knight and having 2 pieces for the rook, or black blocks and Bxe5 winning the queen? Also Kb6 could lead to draw by Qb4 even ?
Aug-07-09  TheTamale: Black blocks the check, White plays Bxe5 check, but White's queen is under fire too, and I still come up with Black coming out ahead in this.
Jan-14-14  firebrandx: This is strange. White is winning by force after 21.Qe6+ Kc7 22.Qxe7+ and if 22...Rd7 23.Bxe5+ Kc8 24.Qxf6 and black is toast. If he tries to save the queen with 24...Qa8, then it's mate in 11 moves starting with 25.Ne6 Re8 26.Qg6. The rook has nowhere to go.
Jan-14-14  Poulsen: Maybe white lost on time? Or his postcard got wet - and became unreadable? Or he (obviously) did not have any good computer to analyze for him? Or whatever ....
Jan-30-14  firebrandx: He didn't really need a computer to play through those exchanges to see where to win, especially in a postal game. Maybe I'll ask Keith what happened here.
Feb-01-14  firebrandx: I heard back from Keith. It seems this is a bad entry. The year is wrong and the moves are wrong, although white could have theoretically held a draw in the correct game score. At least it's more understandable why white resigned. Here's the correct PGN:
