  fredthebear: The previous statement came out wrong and I can no longer delete it.

Black won fairly easily. White (Gjon Gjokaj) could have resigned much sooner; about move 55 is sufficient. The black bishop on the long diagonal controlling the promotion square with a pawn majority will rule. A white knight can be full of tricks, but not here.

Then again, it's perfectly O.K. to fight to the bitter end and make the opponent follow up correctly. Let the stronger player with the advantage give you a lesson in technique over the board. GM Glek will most certainly do that. It's a lengthy, but easy finish for Black.
