Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-26-04  mrdasd: Just curious if anyone knows the circumstances of this game. Since this was game 2, it was not a case of Black not needing to win. Unless, Black was in time pressure, I cannot understand the draw. All my database sources give the same result. Despite the opposite colored Bishops and Rook pawn, this should still be a win with the pawns this far apart, unless I missed a resource.
Oct-27-04  mrdasd: Sorry, should have checked this more closely before posting. It's a clear draw with the Rook pawn.
