Did the game really end like that (41.Kh1 Qxe8) and if so was it just a cute way of resigning?

I noticed that too. I though it was tactical shot aimed at unsettling his opponent. Fox and James would say something like "41.Kh1 - big on surprise value and high on originality. Those averse to the rigours of endgame play may find something of value here."

Actually the similar line in Fox and James is a quote of Watson's joking analysis of Panno's move 1 "resignation" against Fischer.

Recently I managed to lose two pieces and a queen in the same game. I was so woozy that I did not resign till I lost my queen. Then I developed a splitting headache. Three diabetes lollies later I recovered. I scored six out of seven in the allegro that followed the tournament and had endless energy. I suspect that I am going to have to test my blood sugar before every round of every tournament.

Thank goodness it is not a problem in correspondence chess.
