May-18-09  Yodaman: 48. Kg3 ???? Robson's opponent was obviously an amateur. I'm no expert, but I wouldn't have missed taking that pawn for the draw even in a bullet game with 1 minute to make all of my moves!
May-18-09  MaxxLange: <Yodaman> 48. Kxg4 is a loss for White after 48..Kxg6 49 Kf4 Kh5 or 49 Kh4 Kf5
Jul-28-09  aazqua: K*p K*p is the most basic won king and pawn endgame. I'm pretty sure that Robson's opponent was aware of that. Kg3 is actually a clever way not to give up. If Robson takes the pawn and k*p gains opposition for white and is in fact a draw. After Robson dodged that his opponent could have resigned but there's nothing wrong with hoping for a stalemate in 4 or 5 moves at a u12 tourney.

  Knight13: But the fact that White played on after move 49 actually shows him to be an amateur.
