Jan-09-09  WhiteRook48: why did Black play 49...d1=N+?
Sep-27-10  meppi: because if black plays Qe4 straight away. white can play 50. Qg7+ Nxg7
51. Rg7+

and black has 2 king moves -

if Kf8
52. Nxe6+ Ke8
53. Re7#

if Ke8
52. Re7+ Kd8
53. Rg7+ Ke8
and three fold repetition - unless the black king ever decides to go to f8 IE:

53. Rg7+ Kf8
54. Nxe6+ Kg8.
55. Rg7+ Kh8
56. Rg6#

Sep-27-10  meppi: 49. d1 =N+ deflects the rook from the g file and backing up the Queen sac. And so, to win the game! that is why black played it
