Dec-19-06  InspiredByMorphy: I dont understand 19. ...e4 Perhaps 19. ...Ne7 or 19. ...f5 would be better.
Dec-19-06  syracrophy: White now threatens mate, and the only way to avoid it is by the, also losing: 49...♕f2+ 50.♕f6+ ♕xf6+ 51.♔xf6 with an easily won pawn endgame
Jan-29-11  Whitehat1963: Excellent game! Rubinstein trade away into a complex endgame, but he sees the path clearly.

Does Rybka see any missed opportunities here?

Sep-15-15  Esauwept: This looks like a draw to me. Where is the final check? Or its just implied?
Sep-15-15  TheFocus: A draw? What game are you playing?

White's final move 49. Kf7 threatens mate four ways: 50. Qg8#, 50. Qg7#, 50. Qh6# & 50. Qh5#. Black can only check on the f file (49 ... Qf1+/Qf2+) which would be met by 50. Qf6+ trading off Queens. Then consider the position after 50 ... Qxf6+ 51. Kxf6:

This is now an easy K&P endgame win: 51 ... Kg8 52. Ke7 Kg7 53. e5 Kg6 54. Kd7 Kf7 55. e6+ and Queens.
