Jul-01-09  drmariogodrob: <WhiteRook48> I have to disagree that this variation 49. ... Rg5 50. Rh7+ leads to a winning advantage for white. Whereas, 49. ... Rg5 50. h4 wins a whole rook...and king.
Jul-01-09  WhiteRook48: right. How stupid I am!
Apr-17-12  Manofglory: How about 49...Rg5 50.Qf8+? after 51...Kg6 52.Qf7+ Kh7 53.Qh7#, and after 51...Rg7 52.Qg7#
Apr-17-12  zakkzheng: <Manofglory>,H4 has a quicker checkmate because no defence to Qxg5#.

  keypusher: After 44.Qe3, White threatens 45.Qh6+ Kxh6 46.Rh8#. Black's knight can't move, obviously. So, 44....g5. But then 45.Bxg7 Rxg7 46.Qe4+ Rg6 47.Rb7+ Kh6 48.Qf3, threatening Qf8+ and bringing about the finale.

After 49....Rg5, both 50.h4 then 51.Qxg5# or 50.Qf8+ Kg6 51.Qf6# are equally quick.
