Jun-03-06  Milo: Rather a remarkable draw in the ending, as it goes against the famous rule of thumb that the bishop is stronger than the knight with pawns on both sides of the board.

  Eric Schiller: <Milo> And an extra pawn, as well! If you can draw such pawn-down endgames, then the Tarrasch is an excellent choice for Black. Passively defending the d-pawn rarely works out. This game shows how winning such endgames takes perfect technique, and that's tough even for a 2600+ GM like Annakov. I was very proud of my play in this game.
