Jan-05-05  Poisonpawns: This is a facinating game! These players played nearly perfect.The ending has enourmous possibilities, only thing i can see wrong is 41..Ke6? when white has 42. Rb7! although it was not played.41.Nd7!? seems to be ok for black, protecting b-pawn and guarding e7 pawn.Only problem is e4! bothering the knights only protection.So maybe 41..Ke6 was a more pratical choice.I like 45..Rd2! 46.h4 Rh2 keeping the rook active instead of Rd7!? which i think is the final straw to break blacks back,finally 49.h5! is a beautiful way to win for white also.Great game by both players!
