Chess Puzzle (5) Solution

Below is the solution for chess puzzle(5) :-

Hairulov -Mustapa Kamal Zamhuri
Malay Masters 1999, Round 5, UIA Gombak

In the actual game i found 36.Bd5! Re8 36...exd5 37.Qxd5+ Be6 (37...Kf8 38.Qxd6+) 38.Rxe6 Be7 39.Nf5!! Honestly i didn't calculate this move suggest by the Monster Fritz. My intended move is however good enough to mantain the advantage - (39.Qe5 Bf8 40.Ne4) 39...Rxd5 40.Nxe7+ Kf7 41.Rf6+ Ke8 42.Nc6+ Qe6 43.Rexe6+ Kd7 44.Re7+ Kc8 45.Rff7 Rd7 46.Rxd7 Re8 47.Rc7#checkmate 37.Ne4? Unfortunately i missed the idea of 37.f5! now and a few moves later as suggest by Mustapa Kamal after the game 37...Be7 38.Ng3 Bd6 38...exd5 39.Rxe7 Rxe7 40.Rxe7 Kf8 41.Qe3 Qd8 42.Qe5 Qxe7 43.Qxh8+ Kf7 44.Qxh7+ winning 39.Bb7? once again i missed 39.f5! 39...Qc7 40.Ne4? again - 40.f5! 40...Be7 41.Nc3 Bd8 42.Nd5!? 42.Bd5! Is superior 42...Kf8 (42...exd5 43.Rxe8+ Bxe8 44.Rxe8+ Kf7 45.Rxh8) 43.Nb5 Bxb5 44.cxb5 42...Qd6 43.f5! gxf5 44.Qh5?! The correct move is 44.Nf4! Bc7 45.Nxe6 Bxe6 46.Bd5! (Of course not 46.Rxe6?? Qh2# checkmate ) 47...Bxd5 48.Rxe8+ Kf7 49.R1e7+ Qxe7 50.Rxe7+ Kxe7 51.cxd5 44...Kf8! The notation in the tournament bulletin end here but if my memory serve me well the game continued with 45.g6 This lead to a draw after 45...hxg6 46.Qxg6 Rg8 47.h7 Rxg6 48.h8Q+ Rg8 48...Kf7 49.Qh7+ Rg7 50.Qh5+ Kg8 51.Rg1 Rxg1+ 52.Kxg1 Qg3+ 53.Rg2 49.Qh6+ Kf7 50.Qh5+ Kf8 ½–½

I like this game very much. Although i didn't found the perfect continutions , finding the ideas of sacrifices piece for the initiative in critical position gave satisfaction for me. I would like to thanks Mus (photo above) for "helping" me to "produced" this game. With his stubborn defense i can enjoy the game ten years later !
