Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-26-03  suenteus po 147: According to Larry Evans: "Black can salvage a draw by 61...Kg2! 62. Kc5 h1/Q 63. Rxh1 Kxh1 64. Kd4 Kg2 65. Ke5 Kf3! 66. Kxf5 Ke3 67. c4 Kd4 catching the pawn." Black resigned because his f-pawn is doomed, but knowing that fact is actually the key to not losing.
Oct-26-03  drukenknight: in that line: why 66 Kf5 why not 66 c4?
Oct-27-03  suenteus po 147: Because if 66. c4, then 66...f4 and black will queen, leaving...a draw between two queens and two kings, where an exchange will be forced.

  kevin86: Is this Lobron on the Cavs? He does find a way to lose a game at least drawn.
May-27-09  WhiteRook48: 51 Kb6-- 1-0??? I wouldn't resign here! I'd play 51...Kg2- if I'm looking at white's side of the board. If I'm looking at my own side I resign
Aug-20-09  whiteshark: A classic case of premature resignation.

  kbob: Svidler himself commentating London 2011 reminisced that Lobron resigned a drawn position in this game
