Kibitzer's Corner
May-13-09  Drunken king: I like sofia rules, they make draws more interesting

  jon01: Wang Yue made a huge blunder 64. b5??, 64. Kd3 stops the g-pawn and wins.
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: That was close!
May-13-09  Udit Narayan: <jon01> Absolutely. The resulting endgame is winning for Wang Yue. Maybe he was under time pressure?
May-13-09  stonebrain2006: The right move was 64.Kd3!
May-13-09  dumbgai: *facepalm*
May-13-09  WhiteRook48: 64. b5 seems like the move I'd play sometimes

  acirce: Ouch! Poor Wang.
May-13-09  Sicilian Dragon: Was Wang in serious time presurre?

Because how could a GM of his level miss Kd3?

Premium Chessgames Member
  Jim Bartle: Can somebody please explain why 64. Kd3 wins?
May-13-09  1. h4: Kd3, e1=Q; Rxe1, kxe1; ke3 and the king stops the g-pawn and white will win with his own passer.
May-13-09  1. h4: Pretty amazing blunder.

  acirce: Yes, at a quick look you can easily get the impression that Black's g-pawn will queen, but such is not the case. It's kind of an optical illusion of sorts that has tricked many players before. He may easily have been in considerable time trouble, I haven't found out yet.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Jim Bartle: Right, thanks to both. Really is an illusion.
Premium Chessgames Member
  JointheArmy: Proof Yue does not know the box theorem?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Ezzy: Well there is certainly gonna be a sleepless night for 3 of the players tonight. What an amazing day of chess. You couldn't write the script.

  Marmot PFL: I don't know the time controls, but if they are using a "sudden death" format than anything can happen. Otherwise the line ending with Ke3 and opposition on the Ke1 should not be hard to find. Presumably black made his last few moves quickly and confidently and white was taken in.

  whiteshark: Afterwards Wang Yue allowed himself to enjoy some relaxation as you can see here:

  kellmano: Black's opening looks absolutely horrible. I like the Gruenfeld as black, but will not be playing the Brinkmann attack in a hurry.
May-14-09  toastie: Probably first time I've seen Wang Yue do a surprise opening choice (4.Bf4; shame he blundered his work all away in the end...
May-15-09  southall: 64.b5?? (white wins by 64.Kd3! e1Q 65.Rxe1 Kxe1 66.Ke3! Kf1 67.Kf4 Kf2 68.Kxg4 Ke3 69.b5)
