  Benzol: I wonder why this game hasn't been kibitzed on more frequently. It is a real gem.

  Benzol: A very nice ending.

If 49.Kxf6 Rf2+ picks up the Queen.

And 49.Qxf6 Rxe5+ 50.Kh4 Rh5+ 51.Kg3 Rh3#.

May-03-15  Tullius: <Benzol> I suppose Black knew what he was doing when he played 24...Rec8; he must have taken 25.Bf1 into account. By doing so he takes a risk and creates an imbalance that makes the position difficult to assess. In the end the Rooks prove stronger than the Queen, but who can see that at move 24? I mean, you must have a lot of experience before you can even think of commenting on a game like this; that could be part of an answer to your question of April-13-14. Things might have been different, though, had it been a game between, say, Karpov and Kasparov.
