Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-06-05  aw1988: The Black pieces get thrown offside.
Jul-05-13  zydeco: There's no way to stop 50.Rg4. Black's position deteriorates after 44.....h4: probably 44.....g5 was worth a try.
Aug-04-19  King.Arthur.Brazil: For exemple: 49...♖e1 50.♕h6 f6 51.♖g4+ ♔f7 52.♕g6+ ♔f8 53.♕g8# .
