  Peligroso Patzer: I believe the final move should be 45. Kc2 (not 45. Ke4, as currently reflected).

This seems to be another instance where the winning side's King was placed on a central square to indicate the result, with resulting confusion what the last move played actually was. This (the placement of the winning KIng on a central square at the end of the game) seems to me to be a really stupid convention that cannot be abandoned soon enough.

Jun-07-09  Bondsamir: there's somthing wrong. i don't see any sense also in the move 45.Ke4 there's no move more reasonable here than 45.Kc2
Jun-08-09  Glossu: Great Attacking game by Wang Yue!.

  Peligroso Patzer: According to ChessBase, the final move in this game was indeed <45. Kc2>, as previously suggested by <Bondsamir> and me in 2009. [The version here in the CG database still gives the pointless 45. Ke4.]

and then protect the rook?
