Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-25-14  Nerwal: Heroic defence by Anna Muzychuk. Even with two connected passed those queen endgames are tricky. In the position after 106. ♔c1, with the black queen at d5, 106... b3 wins and 106... c3 draws. Were the queen at d4 instead, it would be the opposite. So the simplest way to win this endgame is to expel the white king from the promotion zone with 105... ♕a2+ 106. ♔c1 ♕a1+ 107. ♔d2 (107. ♔c2 ♕a4+) ♕c3+.
Apr-25-14  RookFile: Rapid chess is tough. I'm sure black wins with without fail with more time to think.

  HeMateMe: It seems like black should have won when there were more pieces on the board. I don't think she had to open up her king's pawn cover the way she did.
