  Benzol: Instead of 46.♗a3+ 46.cxb7 might be a better chance e.g. 46...♕e3 47.♕g8+ ♔e7 48.♘d5+ ♔d7 49.♕xe8+ should win.
Mar-09-08  Knight13: This game is freakin' WILD, MAN! Mackenzie did well to crash in on the King-side.

Analysis by Stockfish 070120 64 BMI2:

+- (#13): 46.cxb7 Qxf6 47.b8Q Qc6 48.Qbd6+ Re7 49.Q5xc6 Bxc6+ 50.Qxc6 Kg8 51.e6 Kh7 52.Qc5 Rb7 53.e7 Rxb2 54.Qxf5+ Kh6 55.e8Q Rb1+ 56.Qxb1 Kg5 57.Qbg6+ Kf4 58.Qf6#

Feb-22-22  shallowred: Both masters played very well, and Mackenzie took full advantage of Burn's missed-win (see the post by Benzol above). After this loss, Burn is down 4 wins to 0 in a race to 5 wins but (as noted in both men's bio) Burn battles back and ties the match (+4, =2, -4).
