Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-22-08  TheaN: White to play 54 would make a nice Tuesday. The race and win is well calculated.
Jan-22-08  TheaN: That makes me think if there's no draw for Black after the Rook exchange, but it seems that any Black King move in the move ranges 55-57 won't work. Ok, White won't Queen with check, but Black won't escape the tactics, either way.

57....Kd5 58.a8=Q g1=Q 59.Qd6#

57....Kd4 58.a8=Q g1=Q (Kxd3 59.Qh2) 59.Qb6+

57....Kf4 58.a8=Q+ Kf3 59.Qb6 with 60.Qg1.

57....Kf5/f6 58.a8=Q g1=Q 59.Qf8+ Ke5 (Kg* 60.Qg8+) 60.Qd6+, as in game follows: 60....Kf5 61.Qe6+ Kf4 (Kg5 62.Qg8+) 62.Qf6+ Kg3 (Kg4 63.Qg8+ / Ke3 63.Qb6+) 63.Qg8+ Kf2 64.Qxg1+ Kxg1 65.d4 and mate in, lets say, ~20?

<Now black is sure of queening and then of a draw. Kozomara ordered loudly: "Two Queens, director!" But Ivkov answered ironically, "Yes, but one for not very long!" Kozomara immediately became anxious and looked doubtfully at Ivkov and the position.>

Sep-08-12  newzild: It's not surprising that Ivkov should consider this line to be promising for White. given that he lost on the Black side 10 years earlier (to Olafsson):

This is good but your "a8=Q" should be "b8=Q"...
