Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-04-16  abuzic: <131.Qg5> was a mistake. Both players were using increment time only; Black's <137...Qf3+> was a mistake: 137...Ke1 138.Qb5+ e2 139.Qb1+ e1N! was winning.
Sep-05-16  luzhin: Your variation contains various illegal moves.I think you were trying to say that 134...Qf3+ was a mistake. But Black was still winning after that. The big error was 137...Qd2, instead of 137...Kf1+, which is winning. It is true that 134...Kf1! 135.Qa1+ Qe1 136.Qa2 e2 137.Qa7 Qf2 138.Qa1+ e1=N! was the quickest win. What's amazing is that in this variation 138...e1=Q? allows a perpetual check after 139.Qa6+ with White's Queen using the checking squares f6, a1, and a6. Remarkable dance of the three Queens!
Sep-05-16  abuzic: <luzhin: Your variation contains various illegal moves.> Sorry for the error and thanks for the correction...

With best defense, the only winning line is that which leads to promoting to N!
