  offramp: White has a fortress.
Oct-04-05  DutchDunce: Oddly this is one of the few 5-piece positions that's not in CM9's endgame database. The best it can do is peg Black with a -1.35 advantage at game end. But I trust the judgment of two top GM's that it is a draw.

Micky misses a simple mate threat at move 41, and at the worst time - right after the first time control!

Oct-04-05  Queens Gambit: Sad it wasnt a victory for Moro or Adams, but it was an interesting game, i enjoyed it.
Oct-05-05  azaris: Is there a defense against 47...Qe8?
Oct-05-05  firebyrd: <Is there a defense against 47...Qe8?>

What about the simple Rxb3, then probably best just 48. QxBe5+ Rg3, wouldn't that work?

Oct-05-05  azaris: Does the fortress work when Black has a pawn?
Oct-05-05  azaris: For example 47...Qe8 48. Rxb3 Qxe5+ 49. Kh1 g5 50. Rb6 g4 51. hxg4 Qe1+ 52. Kh2 Qh4+ 53. Kg1 Qxg4 = doesn't quite work, but maybe if Black massages the king forward a bit before pushing the pawn.
