Jun-11-09  sculleyd: I understand that at the end of the game, black can move neither king nor rook as either will end up dropping the h pawn. But it seems to me like 58 ... b6 allows black to play on. What am I missing in reply from white?
Jun-11-09  guaguanco: Perhaps (I don't have a board)

58...b6

Jul-06-11  stanleys: Without knowing this game, I repeated the same opening line against GM Naiditsch in a rapid tournament three weeks ago - and was outplayed convincingly.

Not easy to play against a super GM,especially with black
