Canadian Open, Kitchener 2006
35.Rh8 Ne3 36.h4
36.Kg1 doesn't help, White just begins dropping pawns. 36...Rb1+ 37.Kf2 Ng4+ 38.Kg2 Rb2+ 39.Kg1 Rxh2–+

37.Kg1 Kd5 38.Rd8
Question 16: How should Black continue?

39...Kf3 40.Ra8 Rb1+ 41.Kh2 Ng4+
Panjwani resigns before he is mated (or ran out of time, which is less likely it seems). 0–1
