Elisabeth Paehtz nice wins

Hi to all!

While you are enjoying this week-end, here are two nice wins from Elisabeth Paehtz that was sent to me by Andreas:

It's the postion from the game Cramling - Paehtz, Saint-Petersburg 2009, white just played 27. h3, it's Black to move now, what would be your choice?

That's the position from the game Paehtz - Cmilyte, Saint-Petersburg, 2009. Black just played 35. ... Qf7, it's White to move, what is the best move?

    I would choose 27... Qg3 in the first game. And I would choose maybe for 36 Qc6 in the second game.

    In the first game 27... Qg3, 28.hxg4 (forced, because Qh2#), ... Qxd3, 29.Rd1 (if Bc3 Qd3+; if Qa2 Qxd4) Qc2 (or Qe2 30.Qf3 Bxd4+, followed by Re8 ), 30.Qf3 Qxa4. I don't know if this is ok.
    The second seems easier: 36.Nxh5 gxh5 37.Rh6+ (if Kxh6 38.Qxf3) Kg8 38.Rh8 Kg7 39.Rh7 and wins the Queen!
