Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-18-08  PolishPentium: Really? A draw? Isn't the White king in a good position to block out his opposite number and capture the Rook pawn? Hmmmm
Sep-19-08  Turbo.Abraham: I agree. Looks like a simple endgame to win for white.
Sep-19-08  ughaibu: Black's king can get to c4 if white's goes to b7 or a6.

  Calli: The players were Marshall and J.F. Barry against Lasker and Mieses. Played 14 May 1904 during an off day at the famous Cambridge Springs tournament.

  Gypsy: <57...Kf4!> is sufficient, but also necessary, to draw this. Of course, completely wrong is <57...Kf5? 58.Kd5...> and White wins.

  Phony Benoni: Rice Gambit consultation games between the masters often turn out like this, full of spectacular attacks and breathless escapes from start to finish. The players, no doubt, realized it was in their best financial interest to produce exciting chess, and they succeeded.
