14-20!

Black takes control of both wings, which results in a promising classical position.

31.25x14 9x20 32.27-22 20-25 33.47-42 3-9!

White has no more safe moves. The next two moves compromise the white position.

34.40-34 15-20! 35.48-43 11-17

Of course not   9-14? due to 36.33-29 24x44 37.43-39 44x33 38.38x9 14x3 39.37-31 26x48 40.45-40 48x30 41.35x2 W+

  36.22x11 16x7! 37.36-31 13-18!

This prevents 38.31-27 using 9-14 39.27x16 18-22 40.28x17 26-31 41.37x26 23-29 42.34x23 19x48 B+

42.43-39?

White collapses under the heavy pressure. With   42.28-22 18x27 43.32x21 26x17 44.33-29 24x33 45.38x40 17-22 46.37-31 she could have escaped to a difficult, but defendable position.

  34x43 43.38x49 8-12! 44.42-38 11-17 45.49-43 9-14

Black has taken simple measures to prevent the exchange 37-31 26x37 32x41 23x32 38x27 and therefore the white position is hopeless.

  46.45-40 14-20 47.40-34 20-25! 48.37-31 26x37 49.32x41 23x32 50.38x27 17-21 51.27-22 18x27 52.34-29 21-26 53.29x20 25x14 and white surrendered the game.

Here black could win using 19-24! 30.28x19 (or   30.30x19 13x24 31.28x30 20-24 32.30x19 8-13 33.19x17 11x44 B+)   18-23 31.19x28 13-18 32.30x19 8-13 33.19x17 11x44. Note that   12-17!? 31.27-21! 16x27 32.32x12 23x41 33.12x25 41-46 34.48-42! does not win for black.

9-14?

Black needed to play   8-12 here. Then white has only one possible move: 43.48-42! This brings the threat   44.34-29 23x34 45.27-21 26x17 46.28-22 17x39 47.38-33 39x28 48.32x3 into play. Therefore black must continue with   9-14, which results in an equal position after 44.35-30 24x35 45.33-29 20-25 46.27-22 18x27 47.29x20 25x14 48.32x21 26x17.

  43.34-29! 23x34 44.28-23 19x39 45.38-33 39x28 46.32x3 Now the white position is winning, but later in the game she let the black player escape.
