  An Englishman: Good Evening: One hesitates to wax rhapsodic over an Armageddon game, esp. since the silicon monsters haven't examined it yet (must be a lot of flaws in this one)--still, superficially it looks like an excellent display of how conduct a R & B v. R & B of opposite colors endgame.

However, did Black lose on time? Asking because the win after 58...Kb3 escapes this poor old addled brain of mine.

However, did Black lose on time? Asking because the win after 58...Kb3 escapes this poor old addled brain of mine.> On 58...Kb3 59 Qb6+ forces the king to the edge of the board. Then on 59...Ka3 white's bishop joins in the mating attack by 60 Bd6+ so that on 60...Ka4 the bishop helps White's queen to deliver mate by 61 Qb4 mate while on 59...Ka4 60 Qxa6+ removes the a pawn and opens the a file for White's queen and rook eg 60...Kb3 61 Qb6+ Ka3 62 Ra7+ Qa4 63 Bd6 mate
