Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-13-07  Dr. Siggy: In his classic "Basic Chess Endings", New York 1941, pages 222-3, Reuben Fine gives the position after Black's 28th move as an illustration of the assessment: - "In a Bishop vs Knight ending with material advantage for the Bishop side, if the Pawn position is not blocked, a protected passed Pawn is just as great an advantage as an outside Pawn".

Further interesting remarks by Fine are: (i) after 30... Bg4: "stalemating the Kt temporarily. To get out of the straitjacket White must set up new targets for Black to aim at"; (ii) after 38... Bb1: "to gain time"; (iii) after 44... a5: "to block the Q-side completely before the decisive break on the other wing"; (iv) after 48... Bxh5: "now the h-pawn will be White's Achille's heel".
