Kibitzer's Corner
May-31-06  paladin at large: I guess Levenfish had been fading for some time by this game, and here he does not play a good ending. With his 43rd and 44th moves he shifts his knight from the center to the edge of the board. The knight loses time later and is ultimately unable to help save the decision on the queenside. Perhaps if he had pushed his pawns south earlier and kept his knight centralized, he might have drawn.
May-31-06  Runemaster: Thanks for pointing this one out, <Paladin>. The end position is nice. If Black plays 58...Kd8, the knight is taken with check and the bishop can fly back to g3 next move to stop the pawn.
