Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-30-06  thatsmate: And people say endgame is boring...
Oct-27-06  Stonewaller2: Not I, any time I can turn a half-point into a full point or scrounge a half-point from nothing I'm interested.

But what was the matter, if anything, with 45. ... ♗xb5 - ? White can still play fg after the text, his ♘a5 is more confined ... I'm not getting something here?

Jan-13-09  WhiteRook48: I can turn a loss into a draw... but only if it's KP vs K and I have the K...
Jan-19-09  WhiteRook48: Poor checkover...
Feb-07-09  WhiteRook48: there was another endgame where a ♔♘ was no match for some pawns
Mar-11-09  WhiteRook48: knight is no match for 3 pawns
