Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-16-05  Runemaster: Well played by Pavey, against a mighty opponent. This endgame is perhaps an example of how a knight, used well, can constantly cause problems(even for Keres!) although the bishop might theoretically be the stronger piece.
Mar-16-05  EmperorAtahualpa: uhhmm.. why did black sacrifice its bishop on 61...Bxg3+?

  Karpova: black didn't want to lose his rook (threat: ng4:+ and then he has to play rg4:) he probably thought he had more chances r vs n+r than b vs r
Mar-05-08  astaub: It appears to me that simply 38 ... Qf5 preserves the win for Black because now White does not have the tactical shot of 39 Nd7. I think Keres may have felt that Black was safe after 40 Rc4, overlooking the fact that a couple of moves later his bishop on e6 is in all sorts of trouble.
