Kibitzer's Corner
May-10-14  MostlyAverageJoe: Missed chance for an outright win here:

Possibly puzzle material, even though three moves are equally good, the idea is the same, e.g 39.♕g4 wins on the spot (black has no perpetual check, subsequent h4 forces Q exchange and the a-pawn promotes).

May-11-14  PhilFeeley: <MAJ> Possible time scramble?
May-11-14  MostlyAverageJoe: <PhilFeeley> Nope. White had 33:11 on the clock after the move (on which she spent about 2 minutes). Black had 50 seconds. The game was played with 30-seconds increment, BTW.
May-13-14  Laskerschueler: Yes, Joe, I just wondered how hard is it for human players to find 39.Qg4 ? Would most GMs play it or is it a computer move?

  perfidious: The idea noted by <Joe> is not at all difficult to spot as a problem, and with plenty of time in an actual game, this should have been easier still.

White had a better move than 61.Qxe4+.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: <PB>--do you mean 61 Qa7+ Ke5 62 Qe7+ Kd4 (..Kf5 63 Qbf7#) 63 Qxd6+ Qd5 64 Qdd5# ?

Still, a win is a win.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: <Gregor Sansa Mendel>: 61.Qa7+ Ke5 62.Qg7+ Kf5 63.Qbf7# is the quickest. These multiple-queen endings can be difficult to calculate.
