|Mar-19-08|| ||amateur05: Why is it a draw? I don't understand ...|
|Mar-19-08|| ||Knight to f6: Count the points:Black has a rook and 2 pawns (7 points) against a knight and 4 pawns (also 7 points).|
Plus it's a known fact that a solo knight draws against a solo rook as long as it stays close to its king.
Therefore, unless one of the sides lost all of its pawns and the other one still had at least two, neither player would have any great advantage.
|Mar-19-08|| ||amateur05: I still there think they could have played on. The final position is not a simple one and this was a rapid game.|
|Mar-19-08|| ||chessmoron: Moro had 4 seconds on the clock.|
|Mar-19-08|| ||Bryce101: if moro only had 4 mins on the clock, why didnt kramnik play quick moves and force moro to lose on time???|
|Mar-19-08|| ||ounos: I'm stunned by the show of the white knights!|
|Mar-19-08|| ||calmarten: <if moro only had 4 mins on the clock, why didnt kramnik play quick moves and force moro to lose on time???> Unless things have changed from last year they have a inc of like 10 seconds. |
I thought the final position was a win for white two connected passed pawns for the exchange if anything its white to win or draw but not lose. I also didn't understand 41.h5 I thought Nxf6 was better and white has to stop the a2 pawn but maybe I'm missing something important.
|Mar-19-08|| ||calmarten: Never mind looking at it again 41. ,,,Nxf6, 42.Nxf6+, Kg7 Ne8+ and white wins the a pawn|

|Jun-15-08|| ||LaFreaK: Totally,a win for White..But the clock also matters. If Moro had enough time,i think this will be one of the greatest endgames of Moro.|
