  An Englishman: Good Evening: One hesitates to wax rhapsodic over an Armageddon game, esp. since the silicon monsters haven't examined it yet (must be a lot of flaws in this one)--still, superficially it looks like an excellent display of how conduct a R & B v. R & B of opposite colors endgame.

However, did Black lose on time? Asking because the win after 58...Kb3 escapes this poor old addled brain of mine.

Jun-09-19  Bobby Fiske: -Mame resigned and stopped the clock, a couple of seconds before he ran out of time.

Then on 59...Ka3 white's bishop joins in the mating attack by 60 Bd6+ so that on 60...Ka4 the bishop helps White's queen to deliver mate by 61 Qb4 mate while on 59...Ka4 60 Qxa6+ removes the a pawn and opens the a file for White's queen and rook eg 60...Kb3 61 Qb6+ Ka3 62 Ra7+ Qa4 63 Bd6 mate
