Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-18-18  Albion 1959: No defence against Bf8 and Bg7!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Ron: So it is possible to beat the Berlin Defense but it takes 149 moves.
Dec-18-18  perfessor: <No defence against Bf8 and Bg7!> Or, Be7 and Bf6, winning even more material.
Dec-20-18  7he5haman: At first I thought 119...Rd5+ drew easily, but White can cut off the Black King's route to h8 by placing his Bishop on the a3-f8 diagonal, e.g.

119...Rd5+ 120. Ke4 Rxd3 121. Kxd3 c5 122. Bf2 c- 4+ 123. Ke4 Kc6 124. Kf4 Kd7 125. Bc5 c3 126. h4-  c2 127. Ba3 c1=Q+ 128. Bxc1 Ke8 129. Ba3 

Dec-20-18  7he5haman: Or can he?! I'm not so sure now...
Dec-27-18  Petrosianic: I didn't understand why Black avoided 100... hxg3. What point is there in leaving the weak pawn on h4 as a permanent target for the White B?
