Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-21-05  cade: Wow what a beautifuly played endgame. Especially good when you consider that Rook+Bishop vs Rook is drawn, yet Zhong wins with R+B vs R+P due to positional excellence.
Oct-23-05  csmath: It is still drawn, only Ni Hua lost a theoretical draw. Though luck, Mr. GM does not know to play this draw which shows you just the fact that among GMs there are many people that do not know how to play theoretical draws.

Crucial error:

82. Kd1??

This is just putting a king into geometry completely controlled by black bishop and king, the rest was fairly simple, it was hopelessly lost.

May-21-06  Dionyseus: <csmath> is right, 82.kd1 was the losing move here. Kb1 or Kc1 would have drawn.
