Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-11-12  LoveThatJoker: This whole game is great, but the tactical ideas seen from 59. h5 onwards are truly phenomenal.

It should be noted that if 60...gxh5?, then 61. Qd7+ and White will eventually pick up the R on a2 by force!


Jun-11-12  computer chess guy: After 59. h5, better was .. Kh6, although Black is probably still lost. More decisive is 59. Qb7+! and White can advance the a-pawn: .. Kh6 60. Qc1 Kh7 (Kg7 is no better) 61. Qe6 Rc2 62. Qe7+ Kh6. 63. a7.
Jun-11-12  LoveThatJoker: <computer chess guy> Stockfish gave your entire line immediately, dude.

If you are going to post an engine's analysis you should credit it - because it is not your own.


Jun-11-12  Shams: In <computer chess guy>'s line read 60.Qc6 instead, I suppose. (And on 60.Qc6 Qd3 61.Qe8!)
Jun-11-12  LoveThatJoker: <Shams> It is actually Stockfish's 60. Qc8 followed by the rest of the engine's line.
