  HAPERSAUD: Just interesting is all i can about this game
Aug-14-11  luzhin: Black can make two new Queens, but still loses: 46...f1=Q 47.Bxf1 gxf1=Q 48.Qxf1+ Kxf1 48.a4 and White's third Queen is coming up!
Aug-15-11  notyetagm: Incredible ending.
Aug-15-11  dangerhump: So where did Robson go wrong? Was it walking his king up the h file with Kh5 instead of using it to cut off the white c pawn?

Aug-15-11  davegras: What about 32...g5? Let the bishop be taken. Black can advance the pawn with the King's help, if necessary. White would queen but black would queen first and perhaps make a game of it. I don't have an engine so please tell me if I am wrong.

  FSR: Black has never found a good solution to this line, although Robson did lose on the White side of it at the World Junior two years ago: R Robson vs I Popov, 2009
