Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-20-04  d4Nf6Bg5: 30 Kf8??

  tpstar: I completely agree with Steinitz' comment at Move 10, because Black must play 10 ... Ne6 first. Then if 11. Be3 Bb4 relocates the KB to a useful diagonal, which I believe Black should do even before c6-c5. I partially agree with Steinitz' comment at Move 30, because Black would be fine except for advancing h5-h4 before. But being up one Pawn in a minor piece ending (especially with opposite colored Bishops) is not a guaranteed win. <d4Nf6Bg5>, Black's flag was hanging, but you're right that Black should be centralizing the King (like 28 ... Kg7). Time pressure!

  YoungEd: If the game had continued, would White be better off taking the h-pawn with the ♗ or ♘? My guess is ♗, since opposite colored Bishop endgames are tough as <tpstar> points out.
