Feb-26-14  erniecohen: The database lists this as the premier of the Sicilian Dragon variation. That's pretty remarkable.
Feb-26-14  JimNorCal: Wow, it took a lot work to lose this endgame...
By move 46, Black had ensured that his Bishop was tied to pawn protection and thus could not build a fortress and move the Bishop back and forth. Crisp play by Yates to exploit the errors.
