Jul-21-06  notyetagm: <KNIGHT FORK> 49 ... ♗xh5? 50 ♕xh5! ♕xh5 51 ♘f6+ ♔f7 52 ♘xh5 wins a piece for a pawn since the Black f5-queen is <OVERWORKED>, having to <DEFEND> both the f6-forking square and the h5-target square.

A really well-played KIA game by Movsesian.

May-14-07  dabearsrock1010: This is a huge blunder for black on move 49 for such a high rated player...i wonder if the game is even before this move
May-30-07  dabearsrock1010: Actually I've changed my mind. Black cannot move the queen on move 49 because his only option without being taken is Qh7, which falls to 50. Nf6+. Therefore the blunder must be considered 48...Qf5
Jul-18-08  The Ninth Pawn: From Game Collection: Periodic Table of Tactical Elements: Fork (F) :

In Movsesian vs Z Gyimesi, 2001 , White plays 51. ♘e4-f6+, FORKING the king and queen and winning the queen, so as to be a knight up.

Nov-14-09  WhiteRook48: 50...Qxe4 51 Be6+ is even more decisive
