Nov-03-04  Knight13: Masterpiece of The Pawns. This game is very well played.

  nasmichael: N + 3P vs same, with the centered White King. Do you know how to play this properly? It is worth a visit to your local chessboard. Even moreso, do you know how to defend yourself from the weaker side in a position like this?
Apr-05-05  Milo: It sure looks like 36...Rc8 is the winning move.

  Chessical: Shumov is rather too disheartened, and resigns when he could still have put up significant resistance. For example:

<44.e5> f5 (<44...fxe5+?!> 45.Kxe5 Nd5 46.h4 Ne3 47.Kf6 Nxg2 48.Kxg6=) <45.h4> Nd5 46.e6 Kd6 47.e7 Nxe7 48.Nb6 Nc6+ 49. Ke3 Ke5 50.Nd7+ Ke6 51.Nb6

Sep-15-10  TVik: Nice varations Chessical! Do you think that this ending is a draw? If not, could you please tell me what the winning line/plan is for white?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Chessical: <TVik> I think that with best play White can hold a draw. Using his K and N, he should be able to prevent Black advancing his pawns.
Mar-13-16  Exploding: You guys are all WRONG!!! The white N is trapped on a8, while the black N prevents the white K entry.
