Jul-13-05  offramp: Perhaps play was curtailed for some dinner or something. I would rather have played on, because there is a rather good finish in prospect:

30.Qf3 bxc3 31.e7 cxb2 32.e8Q b1Q 33.Rxb1+ Qxb1+ 34.Qf1 Qb3 35.Qxa8+ Kxa8 36.f8Q+ and wins.

30 ...bxc3
31 e7 cxb2
32 e8Q b1Q
33 Qxa8+ Kxa8
34 F8Q+ Nb8
35 Qxb8+ Kxb8
36 Qe8+ mates
Jul-13-05  paul dorion: 36 Qf8+ i meant

Jul-13-05  offramp: <paul dorion: Better
30 ...bxc3
31 e7 cxb2
32 e8Q b1Q
33 Qxa8+ Kxa8
34 F8Q+ Nb8....>

34...Qb8 looks better.
