Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-19-06  paladin at large: An unusual looking game in that it is not until move 15. that white allows his king's bishop the prospect of any air! I like the way that Tartakower shores up his queenside in the middlegame, where his king is, and carries the advantage into the ending.
Jul-07-06  Runemaster: Actually, White didn't allow his king's bishop out into the air until move 33.

Tartakower converted the ending nicely. I liked 48.c6, temporarily giving up a pawn in order to invade with the king.

Mar-14-11  DoctorD: This score does not match the one in ChessBase.
Dec-08-12  peteg000: Why 52. Kb4 instead of the more natural Kb6?

If 52. Kb6, Black can play to draw by clearing all the pawns: 52. Kb6 <Bxa4> 53. Bxa4 Kd5 54. Be8 Ke4 55. Bxg6 Kf3 56. Bxf5 Kxg3 57. Bg6 Kxf4 58. Bxh5 Kg3.

By guarding the a-pawn with his king, White prevents this counterplay.
