Jun-01-19  ACMEKINGKRUSHER: LOVELY Game to WATCH and now GO Over! Very Interesting Ending! A WIN 20 Moves after Promoting a PAWN to a QUEEN!!! AKK
Jun-02-19  siggemannen: 72.Nh4! is very clever

  OrangeTulip: Aleksandra has a Gorygious endgame technique

  HeMateMe: Indeed, very clever how black's Rook was chased off of the fifth rank. I think that was the crux of white's successful plan. A good position to set up (and try to win) against a computer!
Jun-06-19  James J. Henderson: Goryachkina's 72.Nh4 is the sort of move that made me fall in love with chess as a child. It somehow makes me think of Frank Marshall, where every way of accepting or declining the sacrifice loses. It's also, incidentally, White's only winning move in the position.
Jun-06-19  siggemannen: As a joke, Valya could've done 92... Kh1, and if 93.Qg3?? then Rxe3 draws
Premium Chessgames Member
  woldsmandriffield: The ultra-calm 73 Ra4! leaves Black with just one check

and 73..Kf2+ 74 Ke1 sets the King up for the next game!
