Dec-14-03  Dick Brain: I was always under the impression before that 16... Bxg4! in this specific position was a winning sacrifice.
Dec-15-03  Samuel Villahermosa: It is hard to mate using just knight and Bishop,But Cadman did it without difficulty for that I really,really salute him.

  Chessical: Cadman played the B+N v K extremely well.
According to the Nalimov tablebase, “perfect” play to forced mate from move 61 is:

61Be3 Kc7 62.Kd5 Kb7 63.Nd6+ Kc7 64Bd4 Kd7 65.Nb5 Kc8 66.Kc6 Kb8 67.Nc7 Kc8 68Ba7 Kd8 69.Nd5 Ke8 70Bd4 Kf7 71.Nf4 Ke7 72.Kc7 Ke8 73Bf6 Kf7 74Bd8 Ke8 75.Kc8 Kf7 76.Kd7 Kf8 77Be7+ Kf7 78.Kd8 Kg8 79.Ke8 Kg7 80Bg5 Kg8 81.Ne6 Kh7 82.Kf7 Kh8 83Bf4 Kh7 84.Nf8+ Kh8 85.Be5 mate

Jan-31-08  achieve: I absolutely *adore* the <repositioning of the Knight to e5> at moves 70 & 71 -- where it covers square < g6 >, which allows the White King to go to g4-- after which the Black king HAS to move to the 7th rank, which, in turn, gives g5 to the Black King - and it's curtains.

Dec-31-15  SpecialOlympicWinner: Chuck Taylor All Star Classic.
