May-25-07  DUS: Perhaps the opponent didn't play that good, but GM Ivanchuk ia a super player in any case.

  paulalbert: I am not anywhere near being a master, but this should be a relatively easy technical win since white cannot allow exchange of bishops, K and 2P vs. K and P in this position being an easy win. For example protecting the hP by Kg2 allows Bd5 forcing B exchange. Against Bg2, still probably Bd5, since exchange should win for black, and after Bf1 black works his K in further and continues to offer B exchange or support advance of f pawn and create Zugszwang type positions.

  ganso: <paulalbert> good post. Thanks.
Jun-20-07  waddayaplay: After Bg2, the fastest strategy is Kf6, and now white must play Bf1, black Kg6 followed by Kh5, and white is forced to play Kh3. Then comes pawn to f3 and white must sacrifice his bishop or lose the h-pawn.
Aug-17-07  dabearsrock1010: i played the guess the move and i love how i had no freakin idea how to win the position that was resigned...i read the posts here and im still not entirely sure i could pull it off
Aug-18-07  dabearsrock1010: <waddayaplay> See I dont understand how the king gets to h5 because cant the white bishop stay on that diagonal
