  offramp: Today's title "Whisler's Mutter" is based on the famous painting by Eugene O'Neill Whistler called officially "White Key Symphony", which is a nickname for Karpov vs Kasparov, 1985.

  kevin86: The black pieces surround the white king like a king cobra.
Dec-09-16  widjaja70: AS Black move his bishop back 22... Bg4, Why not White move back his Queen 23.Qa4, making repetition for a draw result ? or there is something that I miss ?
Dec-09-16  nacional100: Apparently white was winning after 21...Bd7, with 22.Qa5 threatening a check on d5 with tempo to finally land on g2, defending everything. It seems that it was a one-tempo difference between winning and losing.
