Analysis by Rybka 2.2n2 mp 32-bit:

1. (2.10): 57.Qe5+ Kd7 58.Ke3 Qc1+ 59.Rd2 Qe1+ 60.Re2 Qg1+

2. (0.53): 57.Qh6+ Kd7 58.Rh2 Qd3+

3. = (0.00): 57.Ke3 Qc1+ 58.Rd2 f4+ 59.gxf4 Qe1+ 60.Re2 Qc1+

Fr. Lombardy overlooked a winning line with 57.Qe5+ Kd7 58.Ke3!

Jul-29-13  Zugzwangovich: Couple of pretty ghastly moves in this one. Father Bill's 25 Nh2 loses a pawn and Geller's 29...Bb5 overlooks a win with 29...Qh3 and 30...Rg4.
