Mar-26-05  Whitehat1963: Excellent endgame.
Mar-26-05  beachbum: Where did Marotti go wrong?
Mar-26-05  Whitehat1963: The annotator provides better clues than I can. As far as I can see Marotti doesn't make any egregious errors; he just gets outplayed.
Mar-26-05  Karpova: <beachbum> the game is annotated...

wrong: 19.ng6:, 20.dc

Mar-26-05  beachbum: Yeah, the knight was superior to the bishop. Most of the time queen and knight combination is better than queen and bishop.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: <Beachbum> This may be quibbling, but the game was a Q+N vs. Q+B ending for only one move. This seems more like a case of Good Knight vs. Bad Bishop to me.

Marotti worked hard to get that outside passed a-pawn; maybe he thought it would have magical powers.

Jan-16-11  jeanwensel: Reti can't play 31.N x c1 because the a pawn will promote:first time I see that in a game.
