Feb-26-17  Saniyat24: Ju Wenjun playing as White had all the answers to Black's threat....in the end game a single Bishop sometimes feels a bit cornered, as it controls only dark or light squares...a single Knight is more versatile than that. Interesting to note that at the end White had only 1 meaningful move after which Black resigned...
Mar-05-17  goodevans: <Saniyat24: ... Interesting to note that at the end White had only 1 meaningful move...>

Meaningful in the sense that it uses a tempo and forces black to retreat from the d-pawn. Without such a tempo-shedding device the game is drawn. Or to put it another way the final position is zugzwang.

If it were white to play in the final position then play might go <57.Kc3 Ke4 58.Kc4 Kxf4 59.d5 Kg3 60.d6 f4 61.d7 f3 62.d8=Q f2> and even though white already has the Q she must use up all her energy preventing black's promotion with none to spare to pursue a mate.

Allowing the promotion then trading Qs on f1 and going after the black pawns doesn't work either since black's K can get to the white pawns quicker.

  Breunor: It seems to me that trading the bishop for the knight was a mistake.
