Oct-29-11  AnalyzeThis: The game starts off as a Tarrasch defense but transposes into a Queen's Gambit Accepted. Could Tarrach have gotten a draw with 54. Rxe7 Kxe7 55. a5?
Oct-29-11  shivasuri4: <AnalyzeThis>,no,the Nalimov tablebases say it is mate in 22 after 55.a5.

Oct-29-11  AnalyzeThis: Yes, thank you. Black can put the knight on a6 and then b4. Play continues on the kingside with the usual "stalemating" of the king on h1. Here it's not stalemate because the white pawns can move. Then the knight hops to d3, then f2, and it's checkmate.

Very interesting!
