Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-02-06  Ron: Came across this game from the random game feature.
It seems that after Symslov, the chess legend, played 50. e6! black's position is in a sort of zugzwang.

Continuations other than what black actually played lose also e.g. 50. ... Kg6 51. Kf4 Kf6 52. Bd3 Bg6 53. e7 Ke7 54. Bxf5 Bxf5 55. Kxf5 Kf7 56. Kxg7 etc

Or suppose black plays 50. ... Bg6 then 51. Bxa6 bxa6 52. b5 axb5 53. axb5 cxb5 54 c6 etc
