It's not possible to play 77. Kh3, the black queen would cover that square. Unless of course, you mean 77. Kg3...which would lead to mate on the next move for white.
|Jan-17-04|| ||Resignation Trap: Yes, PinkPanther, I meant 77. Kg3. |
|Sep-06-07|| ||sfm: Lovely endgame, just winning on one tempo.|
|Aug-04-08|| ||Jedithious: I liked 14.h5. It's purpose is to stop the knight from getting to g6.|
|Aug-04-08|| ||ToTheDeath: Kashdan rejected 30.Nc5+, probably because after 30...Rxc5 31.dxc5 Qxe5+ Black gets a slew of pawns for the rook- this should be winning for White but Kashdan trusted his endgame technique and his instincts did not lead him astray.|
|Aug-04-08|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: If Kashdan thought this ending would be easier than 30.Nc5+, then he had a special gift for endgames.|
At move 17 or 18, Flohr could have tried ...Nxg3; fxg3, which has the advantage of eliminating the traditional f2-f4-f5 assualt on the e6 pawn. The problem is that by opening the f-file for White, Black is also inviting an assault on the f7 pawnj by a Rook or two in conjunction with a Knight on g5.
|Aug-04-08|| ||Once: Black sacs a knight to get two connected passed a and b pawns, but can then do nothing with them. Then white counterattacks to sweep up pawns and boil down to a won pawn endgame. Needs a neat piece of move counting to arrive at the final position, which is a book win for white.|
|Aug-04-08|| ||dTal: one word, superb!|
|Aug-04-08|| ||ChessYouGood: Head to head, this was Kashdan's only victory on the database. Flohr, who was the better player, was 2-1 and some draws.|

L Steiner vs Kashdan, 1933
|Aug-04-08|| ||Phony Benoni: If 30.Nc5+, how about 30...Bxc5 31.Qxc2 Bxd4? The e-pawn probably falls as well, and with Black's bishop controlling a1 things might become dicey.|
|Aug-04-08|| ||kevin86: Too bad for Sol-here is a rare case where a rook pawn on the 7th loses to a queen. White's king is so close that he can set up a mate even if the pawn queens.|
|Aug-04-08|| ||penguin496: After the queen exchange black has three pawns for the piece, two of the pawns are connected passed pawns. Two of the pawns are doubled.|
Who is winning after move 36?
|Aug-04-08|| ||penguin496: Would an earlier f3 by black change the outcome?|
|Aug-04-08|| ||penguin496: Oops,
|Aug-04-08|| ||RandomVisitor: The losing move is apparently 29...Rc2, allowing the White queen to penetrate via b5.|
Perhaps a holding move such as 29...Qb8 or 29...Ke8 will hold the draw.

33.Qa5! Qc4+ 34.Kf3 Qxb3+ 35.Kg2 leaves white with a winning position.
