Jul-06-07  pawnstar3: why is this 1-0 - black's king can eat the pawns while his bishop can stop white's pawn from queening

  WannaBe: Stein lost this game,

  Sneaky: Good catch WannaBe. I guess somebody should tell CG.

  WannaBe: <Sneaky> ?? The score (PGN) is correct. It is 1-0

  Sneaky: Ohhh... I'm terribly confused. ,'-/

OK, so I guess that gets back to what I was saying before. "CLOCK" -- I can't imagine either White or Black calling it quits in the final position here, in a non-correspondence game. It's far too complicated.

  WannaBe: <Sneaky> well, they're just a couple of 2400+ patzers, what would they know about end games with bishop and pawns. =)
Jul-07-07  pawnstar3: the only reason black could've lost here is the clock - other than that, this is clearly a black win
