Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-22-04  Whitehat1963: Great endgame technique from Bacrot. Knight versus bishop.
Jul-18-05  TruthHurts: yes nice, Bacrot is a great endgame player, we've seen it in dortmund against Adams and Kramnik...
Feb-23-06  chesskoff: Even though Bacrot won this game he missed an in-between that gains a pawn: 24. Bxe5+.
Feb-23-06  who: well he actually wins the same pawn anyway (in the next few moves)
Feb-23-06  thebriarpatch: Is it just me, or is Bacrot very much like Karpov himself in terms of style? Maybe just more willing than Karpov to play 'sharp' positions? One would think Karpov himself would have been impressed by Bacrot's technique in this endgame...
Jun-18-18  Omnipotent00001: White mates in 20 moves
