Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-22-09  YoungEd: Houzet possible? He lasts for 45 moves against the invincible Gedult!!
Jun-25-09  David2009: An amazing escape to victory by Gedult. But 24 ...Rxd6+ 25 Kxd6 Rd8+ leaves Black a clear Rook ahead.

  PawnSac: <David2009> even after that, blacks endgame play was horrible.

  jith1207: So, the title should be "The Lion King: Escapes" ?

  morfishine: ???<24...Ke7>???

As pointed out, the elementary 24...Rxd6 wins on the spot. Black's inability to see such a simple tactic means we can relegate this dreadful assemblage of moves to the landfill of irrelevant games

  JCigan: This is not only not an impressive game, it's simply not good. How many players of, say, 2000 elo strength or so would fail to win as black at move 20, especially when 24 ...Rxd6+ was available?
Feb-13-18  Cheapo by the Dozen: Apparently this game was played when Geduld was 82 or 83 years old.
