Aug-25-09  sheaf: zugzwang..!.. I didn't know it was possible to zugzwang karpov in a simplified endgame..even in a rapid game..
Aug-26-09  A Karpov Fan: Must have lost on time, this doesn't look resignable to me.
Aug-26-09  martas: Black rook is locked. Maximum black can do is to put bishop on b1-h7 diagonal and c pawn to second rank but that's it. Follow-up would be somethink like 44 .. Be4 45 Rc7 c2 46 b5 Bf5 47 b6 Be4 48 Rxc2
