Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-28-07  wolfmaster: Why didn't Yanofsky and Kotov agree to a draw at move 41?
Aug-28-07  laskereshevsky: the same Euwe's opinion after 41.♗xc5
<"Dieses Endspiel ist nicht zu gewinnen, da Weiß hinsichtlich des a-Bauern den verkehrten Laüfer besitz. Schwarz braucht nur mit dem könig nach a8 zu ziehen und dafür zu sorgen,daß er seinen Laufer für den letzen weißen Bauern auf dem königsflügelpfern kann...">
Aug-28-07  euripides: There are some traps, though. If the position after White's 48th occurred with Black to move - or if Black played 48...Kc8 - then I think White wins with g4.
