Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-06-05  YouRang: In this endgame, we get a closed position in which the bishops on both sides are quite limited. But from moves 57 to 61, the white knight casually hops its way from e4 to capture the pawn on d4, while the hapless Black pieces can only shuffle around and watch. The pawn capture gives white a decisive 2-pawn advantage. Black gives up 4 moves later.
Sep-06-05  Juan De Pisto: with this game one really believes in that all positons can be defended in chess. nice 5 moves of the white knight after the Qs were exchanged. after all this position was always suitable for a knight.
