Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-09-04  Lawrence: This game is analyzed at Jon Edwards's

With Llubo's Queen virtually out of play after move 22 Beliavsky weaves a deadly mating net.

Jul-23-04  Jim Bartle: According to Informant 38 this game ended with 33...Rc1. Hard to believe would continue on to mate.
Jul-12-11  ET44: Great game by Sasha! One comment added to Edwards's: not 27...Qxd4+? 28.Kb3 Rb5+? 29.Bxb5 Bd5+ 30.c4!

  perfidious: <ughaibu: Which one is "Sasha"?>

'Sasha' is the Russian nickname for Alexander.

<Jim> In two other sources, the game indeed ended after 33....Rxc1.

Without knowing otherwise, I'd have doubted the veracity of the continuation given herein as well.

Jul-12-11  ughaibu: I see, thanks.
Jul-13-11  ET44: Well, the last moves do not really seem to matter anyway. Hoever, I was impressed by Sasha's active play, especially in the centre, denying Ljubo's novelty.
Nov-04-13  Conrad93: 12. Qe3 is almost always played first.

If the queen gets to d3 too late, its game over.

That seems to be the case here.

Aug-13-14  Conrad93: 12. h4?! has only been played four times in the database. Apparently it's not too good, since black has won three time, and only drawn once.
