Feb-07-05  shor: how does white win?
or is it based on material advantage?
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: Looks like white can play Qg6 and Be3, after which there is no defense to Bxh6 gh Qxh6+.
Aug-12-07  sanyas: White developed a strong advantage in the middlegame, but then suddenly lost the thread of it. I think I have found the culprit. He should play 34.Be4 Bf7 35.Rd3 Nd7 36.b4 Nf8 37.Bxh6 winning. 'Other moves by Black only lose differently'.

  fiercebadger: Indeed the plan Bxh6 Be3 and h6 is curtains ..loved 53Qa1 to access the black kingside
Jul-31-21  tessathedog: <shor>The coming winning move is 64 Bb1!! and (startlingly) it's zugszwang! Petrosian mentions this in his own comments to the game, which I accessed in the Quality Chess "Python Strategy".
