Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-15-05  Poisonpawns: Too bad black couldnt win this,it looks like a win though,very intersting and nice escape by danny king.Maybe 56..Kxg4!? 57.Kg2 Ra2+
May-17-06  Whitehat1963: What an excellent game. Does anyone else see any missed opportunities here?
May-17-06  euripides: 50 g4 is very striking, giving Black a protected passed pawn but forcing him to give up the supporting pawn to avoid perpetual.

It looks drawn all the way from mvoe 30 to me but I could well be wrong. Mueller is a great endgame authority.

Jun-04-06  Poisonpawns: I believe white missed a win here guys.I analysed this a few months ago and came up with 37.Rd7? as the bad move that caused the win to slip away. In this position at move 37.whites rook is strongly placed on the 7th rank and blacks rook is passive in defense,also black cannot move his kingside pawns without loss.However white needs to create another problem in blacks position besides the a-pawn.Black would love to get his king in the game trade king side pawns and then go get the a pawn.37.Rd7? allows black to free the position.After 37.Kg5!black is in trouble the d-pawn is immune from capture and he cannot move anthying on the q-side and his g-pawn is threatened.So 37.kg5! Ra5+ 38.Kxg4 Kf6 39.Kf3 g5 40.g4!Kg6 41.Re7! restricting the pawns movement Ra3+ 42.Ke4 f5+ 43.gxf5+ exf5 44.Ke5 and now with the passed d pawn and the passed a pawn white wins.
Jun-04-06  borisbadenoff: With your move-order this leads to a draw. The f-pawn gets exchanged for the a-pawn and then neither one will be able to convert their pawn.

The way to the win is Ke5! which will allow the exchange of the a-pawn for the black rook

Dec-21-08  WhiteRook48: I sense a pun coming up: The King and Rook
Aug-01-14  Mating Net: The battle of chessbase DVD stars. Fitting that it ended drawn as I like both equally well.
