Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-25-04  SamusAran: I'm not sure why Black resigned. He could have done 56...Kb3, winning White's a-pawn. He has a pretty good chance of passing either of his pawns, and even if he didn't, he could force a draw.
Jan-25-04  Catfriend: I think white can win here... I can't analyse it all right now, though.

  Honza Cervenka: There is no chance for black. After 56...Kb3 57.Ba5 Kxa3 58.Kf7 white will go simply with the King for both black pawns and after that he will promote his b-pawn to the Queen. Black cannot avoid it.

  Benzol: <SamusAran> The thing about White having the Bishop is that he can always lose ( or should that be gain ) a tempo and eventually capture the Black pawns. White's QN pawn is the winner.
Dec-23-06  ahmadov: Is Nijmegen a town? If it is then it must be a town of good chess players. It has beaten the Hague and Stuttgart so far.
Dec-23-06  dehanne: Yes, Nijmegen is a town.

Suggested pun, that no one outside the Netherlands will get : "Stick out your NEC".

Dec-19-07  bystander: <dehanne> With the current police strike, I would be very carefull with that pun.
