Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-08-08  Alphastar: Keres tricks Stahlberg! 35. a4 = is fine for white, but 35. Rd2? just loses a pawn.
Apr-23-12  zydeco: 41....Rc2 is a nice move. After 41...Rc6, white can exchange rooks, play Ka5, b4, and then force black to stalemate him with pawn moves. I'm mystified by 48....Re2 and 49.Rf8. Why can't white just take the g-pawn and then play Rg8 next move?
