  NM JRousselle: The game score must be wrong. f4 is mate for several moves.
Mar-22-12  rilkefan: Per stockfish, 52...f5 would surely have been met by gxf with a clear advantage. Say ...Kf6 53.Qc3+ and black can't take on f6 so his king gets pushed back the 8th rank and after playing Qd2 white can push c6, pretty much forcing ...Qg1/Kxf3 Qh1+/Kg4 Qxc6/Kxg5 which should be winning.

After 52...f6 the game makes sense. I'll submit a correction slip.

Mar-22-12  King Death: Here's a source that gives 52...f6 and the last few moves leading to the draw: http://www.365chess.com/search_resu...
