  Knight13: I believe Dzindzichashvili can win by pushing the King side pawns.
Dec-24-04  TheSlid: <Knight13> What time is it in Kentucky? I am trying to get my 7 & 10 year old to go to sleep at 10.45pm local time in the UK.

The trick in these pawn endings is to "count the moves" - this might be from the "most instructive games" by Irving Chernev - which is incidentally a collection made by <uglybird> on this site. White is going to try to promote one of his Q side pawns. Count how many moves he needs to do this and see what Black can do on the K side with this number of moves.

Enjoy tomorrow, young man!

  Knight13: <TheSlid> Oh yeah. I didn't see the move 45. c5! was coming!
Jan-21-13  Chessosaurus: Waitzkin talks about this game in one of the Chessmaster computer games. He says that when Dzindzichashvili offered the queen trade (39... Qf7) he failed to see 44. b5, assuming white had to play 44. c5 (which draws). The continuation he gives is 44 ...h5 45. c5 bxc5 46. b6 kd6 47. e5+ Kc6 48. e6... black can't stop both pawns.
