Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-04-04  chessfected: nice final position. After 52.Nd7 the Bishop and Knight will both be powerless to stop the a-pawn!
Apr-04-04  TrueFiendish: You mean Ne7...
Oct-29-04  arifattar: Do you hate the letter 'c'?
Aug-04-08  SetNoEscapeOn: Clearly, Nc7?? allows Bc6

  Gypsy: <49.Nd3! Nxd3 50.a6 Be7 51.Nd5+... 1-0>

That resignation clearly came in view of <51.K~ Ne7!>. Because the White knight thus controls c6, the a-pawn not only easily queens, but the queen survives to rule the board.

Feb-17-13  abstract: 49.Nd3 can be a good saturday puzzle...
