The longest game of the Olympiad to end in actual checkmate. It was done with 5 moves to spare before the 50 move rule applied.

White could have tried 72.Qc3+ as 72...Kxc3 is Stalemate. Unfortunately Black is not forced to capture on c3 but worth a try.

White missed a three fold rep - this position occurring with Black to play on move 79, 81 and 85.

If made no difference to the final outcome of the match Eritrea (El Amin Khalid) beat Sudan (Asante Debesai Zerabruk) 4-0.

An interesting game to play through. White appears to have excellent winning chances had he played 56.Kb5 here.

I do not think White can lose after 56.Kb5.

A nice piece of late in the game calculation to get one of the pawns promoted whilst allowing White to promote. Black to play.
