Sep-25-13  Kikoman: The Knight was trapped. If 39. Nh5 dxe4! 40. Nxf6?? exd3 and that pawn will be promoted to a Queen. Nice game by Topa. :D
Sep-28-13  master of defence: Yes, white's knight is trapped. 39.Nf5 dxe4 followed by 40...Rxf5, but if 39.Nh5 Rh6! is the correct, winning the knight anyway, since 39...dxe4? 40.Nxf6 exd3 41.Re8+ Rxe8 42.Nxe8 and it may be a draw.
Sep-28-13  Kwesi: If 39.e5, does black go for 39...Rxf4 40.Nh5 (40.Rg2 Bf8) Rf1+ 41.Kc2 Rgg1 ?
