Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-29-05  Gowe: Why black accept the draw?
Jul-29-05  Montreal1666: It is black who offered the draw!
Sep-12-05  Gowe: Black offered the draw? are you sure? because that would be amazing and a very coward action. Well, probably he had his fears against the monster Kramnik.
Sep-12-05  psmith: <gowe> Maybe he was about to lose on time?
Sep-12-05  psmith: And maybe in time trouble he was worried about 36. Rxc8 fxe4 37. Rdd8, although it doesn't really seem to come to much.
Sep-12-05  psmith: Of course, Black is winning, don't get me wrong. I just wonder if he hallucinated in time pressure.
Sep-16-05  lopium: Hmm, I don't know.
Sep-16-05  PARACONT1: Monster Kramnik? gee the kid was only 14 yrs old then!
Jan-21-06  something1234: If you lose a piece and are going to lose but your opponent cannot mate you in the time he has left do you have to resign ?
Dec-11-08  thebribri8: If you have insufficient material to mate (e.g. a king and bishop) and your opponent runs out of time, no matter what material he has, the game is a draw. However, if you have a pawn, and your opponent has 2 queens but runs out of time, you win the game.
