Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-02-05  RookFile: I guess he can win by allowing
49.... Qxf4+ 50. Kc8 Qxc8+ 51. Kxc8 Kxd8, because the white pawn queens too fast.
Feb-02-05  who: 16.c5! threatens back rank attacks and a rook pin with the bishop.

I think <RookFile> meant to suggest 49...Qxf4+ 50. Kc8 <Qxb8+> 51. <Kxb8> Kxd8.
Oct-29-05  Calli: 15...Nf6? is bad 15...Nc5 holds because of 16.b4 Ne6
Aug-04-14  sneaky pete: Game 10, Rotterdam, January 6.
Feb-01-15  poorthylacine: But it seems after 15...Nc5 16.b4 Ne6 17.Qd5!? puts attacking pressure on Black?
