May-15-05  aw1988: What a game!
May-15-05  Milo: 52...f2+, yes?
May-15-05  Milo: Oh, nevermind, that doesn't work at all.
May-15-05  Milo: 52...f2+ 53.Nxf2
Dec-22-05  optimusprimeooo: looks like black gave up or miscaculated bad endgame
Mar-05-06  DeepBlade: A big pawn mass takes a lot of tempo to move, than a lone pawn.

  Phony Benoni: Apparently, Eugene Meyer has a sense of humor. You don't often see one player have three dark-squared bishops in the same game.
Dec-04-08  WhiteRook48: e1B+. fxe1B, weird...
Dec-22-08  WhiteRook48: Ha ha ha ha ha!!!! I would've laughed myself senseless if I'd seen this game.
Dec-22-08  Toadspring: Is there ever any advantage to under promoting a pawn to a bishop or rook? I understand promoting it to a knight because of various forks but otherwise a queen is always better... right?
Dec-22-08  Toadspring: I figured it out. Under promoting to a rook or bishop may help avoid stalemates in certain games. I didn't think of that earlier.
Dec-23-08  WhiteRook48: 4 dark-squared bishops in the same game.
1. White's Bc1 at the start and Be1 at the end.
2. Black's Bf8
3. the pawn who promoted with a check.
4. the pawn who promoted with a capture
Jan-05-09  WhiteRook48: the game seems like a draw. Maybe if white has that bishop controlling b6 and a7 black can't get to the a-pawn, or better, the bishop ON b6, white can get his king over to h8 and play h8Q Nxh8 Kxh8 hoping to get the a pawn to queen? Anyone got an answer?
Feb-03-09  WhiteRook48: I suppose the promotion to bishop wasn't necessary
Mar-09-09  WhiteRook48: or simply maybe 50 Bc3+ followed by 51. h8=Q Nxh8 52 Bxh8
Apr-15-09  WhiteRook48: no, wait 49...Nh8 50 Bc3+ 51 Bxh8
Sep-27-18  Ironmanth: First time looking at this, merely by chance, as today is the Fed's 60th birthday. I recall both of these players well in the eighties at many NY and World Opens. What an amazing game! Happy birthday, John Fedorowicz.
