Jan-20-04  jesenjin: can someone tell me why did black resign??????????????????it is a won game, plays bishop e4, and the white is forced to exchange his queen, bishop and 3 pawns win against a rook........
Jan-20-04  Cyphelium: <jesenjin> On 45.- Be4, 46. Qb8 is mate. This mate cannot be avoided, so that's why black resigned.

<Why black did not play 9...d4!> Maybe he did not want to give up the e4 square after 9...d4 10. a3 Bxc5 11. Ne4.

  michaelmbast: After white's move 39. Rf1, I like 39... d5. - d4. Now black has a mate threat in g2, a back rank mate threat, a huge passed pawn on d4 and an active king to escort it. Every white move will have to be a check. Then when the black king escapes the checks, (and he will) white must resign.
