Feb-01-05  Genevieve: 51. Nxe5!
Maybe a nice 'white plays and win' problem?
Sure would like to see some analysis on this one.
Feb-01-05  MoonlitKnight: 52...Nd6 runs into 53.Bb8+ for one thing. Other lines just give the piece back, when the rook endgame is easily won.
Sep-28-05  Poisonpawns: "Cramped positions contain the seeds of defeat" Thats all i have to say about this one.51.Nxe5! and look at blacks pieces,amazing.
Jul-20-09  BISHOP TAL: If 51 Ra3 52 Ng6++ Kd8 53 Re3 The test of time kasparov. This book is rich with analsyse on this game very good book so far.

Could you post your line?

At first glance, 56. Re7+ Nd7 57. f7 Ra8 58. Re8 Kb7 and I don't see how it's better than the actual game line.

Jul-27-17  ChessHigherCat: First trade of pieces on move 38!
Jan-04-18  Sularus: first ever capture on move 27!

Solve for white on move 51.

I saw 51.Bxe5 which still allows white to win.
