Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-06-05  suenteus po 147: Interesting that the game went on as longas it did. What I can't quite tell is, who thought they had a chance to win the endgame with just the pawns left? I'm guessing it was Fahrni. Oh, and for beginners in the endgame: the temptation to take the pawn with 47...Rxh4 should be immiediately squelched for fear of 48.Rb5+!
Dec-03-06  euripides: <suenteus> Black could draw easily with 52...Kf6 53.Kf4 g5+ 54.hxg5+ Kg6 when he will be left with the rook pawn against the bare king. So I surmise 52...Kd7 is a winning attempt; Schlechter succeeds in gaining the opposition but it isn't enough to win against the accurate 57 Ke4 (any king retreat by White loses).

  Mateo: 30...Rad8? leads to a draw. The Rook had to stay on a8 to protect the a5 pawn. 30...Re3 gives better prospects to play for a win.
