Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-24-06  think: 27...Qb5 loses the game by force, but black's position looks dismal. I don't know if black has anything better.

27...g6 28. Rxg6! fxg6 29. Nxg6+, and now black threatens e5 27...Bxe5 28. fxe5 Rd7 29. Rxg7

I'm not sure how white would proceed after a waiting move such as b3.

Apr-28-07  labqi: I AGREE.......the move of queen cause to lose,..........
