Either or Neither
Is move 9 or 10 bad? itís worth examining the moves after 10GGx8k to find alternative plays and establish the best line. Gunterís accurate play won out nicely in the end.
Black : G Mensching - White : Dave Harper - Started : Jun 30 2007 - PBeM 202
1 P-7k 2 SE-3f 3 HF-4k 4 P-10f 5 SE-14k 6 HF-13f (In the 4 birds opening I gave 6P-9f here)
7 BG-8k 8 HFx8k 9 Fix8k Black feels the Fire Demon is poison
10 GGx8k It now depends on this move, can White take the demon?
11 VGx8k 12 VG-13h To stop GG-8m mate.
13 P-13k Stops VG-16i mate in 2
14 Fi-11f It seemed a good move at the time, but..? 
15 FE-7n Prepare to mate (GG8n)
16 BGx4k 17 Px4k 18 FK-11d 19 GG-8n 20 K-9b 21 RG7m-9m 22 K-10c RG-9d is the alternative.
23 VG-5i 24 FK-9f 25 P-10k 26 Fi-11jx!10k,12k 27 BG-6h 28 Fix9lx!8l,9m,10m Not enough for the Fi but black was threatening BGx10d+ RGx10d VGx10d mate.
29 BGx10d+ 30 Fi-10ex!10d 31 VG-2k 32 K-11d 33 FEx9l 34 Fi-11h  (VG12j F11k!) Exchanging RG for VG on 9d leaves white material down, so hoping for a shot at Fix5n but position needs to change first.
35 FEx13h 36 LHx13h 37 LH-5j Threatens Fix10f mate

38 FKx5j Not looking too good for white.
39 VGx5j 40 K-10d ?
K-10c would be obviously better, white missed the excellent next move, opening the rank for the GG!
41 Fi-9m 42 Resign  (P9f GG10n K9d Fix9f) (Fi9g VG6h)
