Apr-14-19  SeanAzarin: I think it was the great Znosko-Borovsky who advised that you should never let your King be put in a stalemate position, because if your opponent can find a way to check, it becomes mate. The corollary to that is always have your King be able to move off the back row, otherwise a back rank mate is possible. White failed to obey that precept.
Apr-14-19  actinia: white's game seems to fall apart around move 24. I think white should play bf1 or fxg4
Apr-14-19  actinia: well, bf1 loses so I guess fxg4
