  WarmasterKron: One of the more unusual stalemates in the database - Black has a material force of 12 but still has no legal move.
Dec-20-06  dbquintillion: What was the reason for playing 17. ... b6 I wonder?
Dec-20-06  Prokofiev fan: White must have kicked himself after that last move.
Nov-06-09  WhiteRook48: 51 Bf8 is just natural, however 51 Bd6 or 51 Bf6 is better
Jun-12-15  dumbgai: ANY legal move other than 51. Bf8 is better. It is the worst possible move in the position, in that it is the only legal move that doesn't win (except possibly 51. Ne4?? which loses two pieces - but even then white may be winning).

The easiest win is 51. Bxe6 followed by Bxd5.
