Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-08-05  svbabu: Classic End game; sac the knight to create the passed pawn. wow! Great Kaspy!
Nov-08-05  Jim Bartle: OK, I'll bite. How does white win?
Nov-08-05  sitzkrieg: I think White s King just marches to c5 to create a passed pawn and helps it Queen. Black will have to give his bisshop and the black king cant leave nor attack the g/h pawns.
Nov-08-05  Jim Bartle: Looks like that works.
Jan-09-07  beatles fan: The Continuation is in Schiller's Endgame book, 639 endgame positions. Great book by the way.
Nov-23-08  hedgeh0g: Black's king is forced to stay in the corner to prevent the march of the h-pawn, while the white king is free to hop over to the queenside and get the other pawns rolling.
Sep-06-09  WhiteRook48: in some ways...
Feb-27-11  kellmano: This would be a very good puzzle after black's 47th. Interesting how useless the black king and bishop are.

Timman claims that after 47.....Bc7 the game should have been drawn.

Jun-15-15  fallen angel: kelmanno-you meant 46.bd7..?how to draw then?
Jan-12-16  Joker2048: Kasparov is the Godfather of the chess board...
Holy Garry!!!
