Apr-26-05  jmuller: 10...Bxc3+ would have been far stronger!
Apr-26-05  aw1988: The white pawns get there first, for if Bxc7 Ba7#. Humerous end.

  samvega: <aw1988> Yes, and very clever, if he saw it in advance. Was 51.Ka6 a redundant move? Seems he could have played b7+ a move earlier, saving a tempo. I don't think 10..Bxc3+ would be a good move. It gives up the bishop pair, leaves black weak on the dark squares, and deprives black of his outpost square d4.
