  tpstar: Great to have the clocks, even the flashing red dot! Strong work.
Nov-26-04  tacticsjokerxxx: Thanks, nice profile pics by the way.
Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: These guys are using every last second before time control! I don't think Black can hold this ending.
Nov-26-04  TIMER: The opposite bishops give good drawing chances if black can swap rooks.
Premium Chessgames Member
  acirce: Even without rook swap it should be a draw although Kasparov will try for quite a while probably.
Premium Chessgames Member
  xenophon: can't see how white makes progress;this is the sort of position i like having at club level;white can play on knowing black can be the only one to lose
Nov-26-04  TIMER: If e6+, Kg6 loses to Rc8 queening pawn, so king must retreat.
Premium Chessgames Member
  acirce: On the contrary, pawn queens (or mate) IF he retreats. ..Kg6 only drawing move.
Nov-26-04  TIMER: Or so I thought, but it has been played!
Premium Chessgames Member
  xenophon: king can get back to F7 in time i think
Nov-26-04  TIMER: How can black stop pawn queening after Rc8?
Nov-26-04  TIMER: Rf8+ answers Kf7
Premium Chessgames Member
  xenophon: acicre,where@the mate after kf8 with be8 to follow?
Nov-26-04  TIMER: I think white wins.

  crafty: 44. ♖c3 ♖c4 45. ♖b3 ♗e8 46. ♖e3 ♖c2 47. ♖e5   (eval 1.06; depth 15 ply; 100M nodes)
Premium Chessgames Member I wonder why crafty doesn't like 44.Rc8 here.
Nov-26-04  TIMER: How does black answer Rc8 preparing to queen the pawn?
Premium Chessgames Member
  acirce: <xenophon> no mate, but 44.Rc8+ Be8 45.Rc7 and pawn will queen or White will at least start gobbling pawns..
Premium Chessgames Member
  acirce: <TIMER> 44..f4+ 45.Bxf4 Kf6
Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: After 44. Rc8 f4+ why not 45. Kh2 keeping the Black King off f6 = 45 ... Rxa3 46. e7 Kf7 47. Rf8+ Ke6 48. e8=Q+ Bxe8 49. Rxe8+ and Black has the 2 Queenside Pawns for the Bishop?
Nov-26-04  AdrianP: <tpstar> 46 ...Re3 maybe
Nov-26-04  TIMER: Unfortunately black has Re3 after e7 as f4 covers the bishop.
Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: Wait, after 46. e7 Black now has 46 ... Re3 preventing Queening.
Nov-26-04  AdrianP: <> <crafty> Crafty doesn't understand these sort of positions. Thinks an extra pawn is +1.
