Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-13-20  Gottschalk: After the advance 39.h4!! (giving 1 extra time), Levenfish will make 2 checks until reaching the double check -and this is deadly.

Two possible sequences are 39 ... d3 (if 39 ... Bf3 40.Qf4 + Kh5 41Rg5 + Kh6 42 Rg6 + dp kh5 43 Qh6 mat.) 40 Qf4 + Kh5 41Rg5 + Kh6 42 Rg6 + Kh6 43 Qg4 # dual An original finish against the king on the edge. The only one I remember with this notable f5-pawn

Mar-13-20  JimNorCal: Wow. So nice!
If white gets a pawn on h4 then after Rg5 black will be hard put to find a way to stop Qh5x
