  Phony Benoni: <This ending caused this game to be awarded the best game prize.>--Yanofsky, "Chess the hard way".
Feb-04-07  morphyvsfischer: Great bishop ending. Black needs to keep the knights on, thus 40...Ne6? deserves to be punished.

43...Bd7 44 g3 Be8 45 Bb5! Bf7 46 Ka5 Kc7 47 Ka6 Kb8 48 a5 g5 49 f4 h6 50 Ba4 Be6 51 Be8! will soon win the d5 pawn after Kb5-c5 and Ba4-b3. Absolute bucketload of zugzwangs in this game, as the black bishop loves the 'pivot point' d7.
