  Nightsurfer: The early foray by Black Knight right into the center, namely 6. ... Ne4! and thus boldly seeking confrontation with White Nc3, has got new support in the last decades of the 20th century, please compare B Koester vs R Gralla, 1973 and S Amiri vs R Rezaei, 1992 , and at the beginning of the 3rd millennium, please replay Deep Fritz vs Kramnik, 2002 (though in the latter case the Swing of Horse has been executed one move later, namely with 7. ... Ne4 after the foregoing 6.0-0 0-0 7.Nc3 ...).

  sleepyirv: 57... Rd1! Very fine move to stop a stalemate tactic.

  wwall: 42.Rb5 is the losing move. White had to play 42.Ke4 Ka6 43.Kd3 b5 44.Re1 b4 45.Re5 or 45.Kd2.

43...b5 throws away the win. Black has to play something like 43...Rc4 44.Ke5 b5 45.Kd5 Kb6 46.Ra1 Rf4 47.Rc1 Gg4 48.Rc2 Ka5 49.Ra2 Kb4 50.Rb2 Ka4 51.Rb1 b4 52.Kc5 Ka3 53.Ra1 Kb3 54.Kd6 Kc3 55.Ra4 Rh4 56.Ra1 b3 57.Rc1 Kb2 58.Rc8 Kb1 59.Kd5 b2 60.Re8 Ka2 61.Re2 Ka1 and Black wins.

46.Rb1 loses. White had to play 46.Kd3 (or 46.Ke3) 46...b4 47.Kd2 Kb5 48.Rc1 Rd7 49.Kc2 for the draw.
