  Jim Bartle: He must have very strong hands now. It would be a great exercise to hold that book open (at least the edition I had) for so long. You could lose a finger if it got caught when the book snapped shut.

A L Carpinter versus P W Stuart

Position after Black's 35th move

36.Nb3 f4
37.gxf4 gxf4
38.Kd3 fxe3
39.fxe3 h5
40.h3 Ke5
41.Nd4 Bc7
42.Nf3+ Kf5
43.Nh4+ Ke5
44.Ng2 Bd8
45.e4 Bb6
46.Ne3 Bd8
47.Nc4+ Kf4
48.e5 h4
49.Kd4 Kg3
50.e6 Kxh3
51.Nxa5 Kg3
52.Nc4 h3
53.Ne3 Kf3
54.Nf1 Kg2


Instead of 49.Kd4 White might have tried 49.Nxa5 Bxa5 50.e6 Bd8 51.a5 Ke5 52.a6 should win.

At move 50 an alternative 50.Ke3 only draws e.g. 50... Kxh3 51.Kf3 Kh2 52.e6 h3 53.Kf2 Bh4+ 54.Kf1 Kg3 55.Kg1 Kf4 56.Nxa5 Kf5 1/2-1/2.

52.Nc4 is good. If for example 52.Nc6 then 52...Bf6+ 53.Ke3 h3 and Black wins.

- Analysis from the New Zealand Chess Magazine.

Bet Peter was glad he'd studied Fine's Basic Chess Endings.

  Richard Taylor: Paul there is a new book (Lamprech I think it's by) and shorter but still very good one by Gambit that covers most endings. But point taken. I wished I had studied endings more myself.
