Nov-27-07  tal lover: i think the winning line is 41...Kh7 42.Bxg4 Rxg4 43.Re7+ Rg7 44.Ng5+ Kg6 45.Rxg7+ Kxg7 46.Ne6+ Kf6 47.Nxc7
Nov-27-07  drmariogodrob: Also winning is 41. ... Kh7 42. Be4+ where 42. ... Kh6 43. Rh8+ losing both the rook and the bishop, and 42. ... Rg6 43. Re6 Ne5 44. Nf4 thankfully loses just the rook. I'm not convinced that the knight may escape in your line after 47. ... Ke7 etc, followed by what should nonetheless be a won king and pawn endgame for white after 48. g4 Kd7 49. Na8. Truly many roads to paradise...
Nov-28-07  tal lover: <drmariogodrob> im so methodic, thank you your line is cleary better
Nov-28-07  tal lover: only a correction after 42...Kh6 its mate in two

  superuser171: IMHO .. Nikolic lost his advantage by playing 22-..Nf6 instead he could of played 22-..Bxc3 23-bxc3 Qg7 and now I can't see any good moves for white..
Dec-03-07  drmariogodrob: <tal lover> Yes, this is indeed mate. Good call.
