  Knight13: 3...e5! is like the best move ever. But after a while the queen looked like it's already been placed on a good square on e2.

  Knight13: <35...b5 A good move, and putting White on the defensive, as he cannot advance the Pawn, or it would be lost, Black being able to attack it four times, by Ra6, Rba8, Nb7, etc.> Black forgot to mention that 35. Bb3 is bad. Rab1 was the proper move.

  zanzibar: The instructive ending Pillsbury is referring to isn't this:

49...Ra1+ 50.Kg2 Ra6 1/2-1/2

but, rather, this:

<49...Rg8 50.Rh6+ Rg6 51.Rhh7 Ra1+ 52.Kg2 Ra6 53.Kh3 Ra1 54.Kh2 Ra6 55.Kg2 Rb6 56.Ra7 Rg8 57.Rh6+ Rg6 58.Rhh7 Rg8 1/2-1/2>
