Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-24-04  azaris: Klinging on to the a-pawn is White's key to a draw: 43. ♔c4 ♔b7 44. ♔b4 ♔a6 45. h3 and if 45...e3 46. ♔c3 ♔xa5 and White holds comfortably.
Nov-09-04  who: after 43 Kc4 white must maintain the opposition. in order to force whites move black plays 43...Kd7!! play may continue along two lines. (a) 44.Kd4 Kd6 45.Kc4 Kc6 and white can not hold both b5 and d5. The same is true of 44.Kb4 or 44.Kb3 (b)44.Kc3 Kc7! followed by 45...Kd6 and gaining the opposition on c6-c4 next move. However white does have one final successful trick up his sleeve after 46.Kc4 Kc6 47.Kb4 Kd5 48. Kb5!! and even though black queens first white queens with check so black is forced to retreat 48...Kd6 49.Kb4 etc.
If 47.h3 then the next time around after 55. a8=Q+ Kd4 56.Qd8+ Ke3 57. QxP Qf1+ followed by Qxh3 which may give a slight advantage to black due to the proximity of his king.
Nov-09-04  Saruman: 53.-Qg3! 54.a6 Qg6 55.a7 Qg2 56.a8D Qxa8+ and wins because the black king is too active, otherwise its a draw.
Nov-09-04  Saruman: Extended analysis;57.Kg7 Qg2+ 58.Kf8 (Kh8 then Ke7)-Ke6 59.Ke8 Qa8#.
Nov-16-04  who: <saruman> didn't get which variation you were analyzing at move 53 or 57 please elaborate.
Jun-30-17  offramp: 41. KxNc4.
