Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-18-03  Kenkaku: A fine endgame by Pillsbury, forcing black into zugzwang on move 52.
Sep-19-03  drukenknight: looks like Sch. forget to blockade by 43...Bd7 w/o that blockade, whites K quickly penetrates too far.
Mar-11-04  Kenkaku: <drukenknight> 43...Bd7 loses the a-pawn, and then white can just wait for black to run out of pawn moves and become forced to move his king. Perhaps black can save by moving his bishop at some point, but it looks grim.
Aug-04-13  okiesooner: After 43...Bd7 44. Bxa6, White forces Black to give up his Bishop with 45. Kc5 followed by moving his Bishop to c4, d5, and c6, i.e. 44...Ke6 45. Kc5 h5 46. Bc4+ Ke5 47. Bd5 g4 48. hxg4 hxg4 49. Bc6 Be6 50. d7 Bxd7 51. Bxd7.
