Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-24-03  Voxation: Why did black resign?
Jun-24-03  jmcd2002: If 57...Kf7 (or ...Kh7), then 58. Qc7+ losing the passed pawn. Any other king move loses the e-pawn, and (unless I'm missing something) the unconnected rooks will soon follow. If anyone has a possible continuation for black, though, I'd love to see it.
Jun-24-03  Jonber: Black resigned because there’s no way for him to hide his king sufficiently from the White queen, and sooner or later Black’s c-pawn will fall to a king fork. A sample line can go:

57...Kf8 58.Qf6+ Ke8 59.Qxe6+ Kd8 60.Qd5+ Kc7 61.Qc5+ Kb8 62.Qxc2

Black can try other moves, but it won’t help. White can even give away the knight without compensation, and still win the game.

Jun-24-03  crafty: 57. ... ♔h7 58. ♕e4+ ♔g7 59. ♕xc2 ♖xf1 60. ♕c7+   (eval 8.21; depth 14 ply; 250M nodes)
