Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-05-03  cruzian: After obtaining a won position Torre missed a clear win two times: first 29.Bd8+! Ke6 30.Qg4+ would have won immediately, as well as 31.Qg4+ Kd5 32.Qf3+ Re4 33.c4+ dxc3 34.Rd1 Ke6 35.Be5!

In turn, instead of 34...Rg8?, Black could have played 34...Qxc7 and after 35.Rxc5+ Kxc5 36.Qxc7 Kb4 37.Qxa7 Kc3 the passed d-pawn is strong. White probably don't have more than draw by perpetual.
