   Jun-08-18 S Volkov vs D Anikonov, 2016 (replies)
 
whittaker: <Jimfromprovidence> Yes, I think 114... Bb6 or 114... Bh4 draws. After 114 ... Bb6, Black can get his King to e7 in the three moves it takes White to play Nb7, Kd6, and Kc6. Then White cannot capture the Bishop while also protecting Pd7, and Nc5 is no longer check, so the ...

whittaker: <ChessHigherCat> Actually I don't think there's a perpetual after 39 ... Bxg2 40. Qf5+ Kg8 41. Qe6+ Kh8 42. Qe8+ Kh7, so that line also wins for Black

whittaker: <gofer> <I can't beat crafty after 17 ... Qc7> From that position I played against crafty as follows: 18. Rfe1 Rfd8 19. Re3 Bf8 20. Qxf6 Bg7 21. Qh4 Kf8 and I'm two pawns up.

whittaker: <The good news is, Crafty End Game Trainer (reborn as Crafty Endgame Simulator, Crafty ES) is back!> Is there any way to make it Black to move on this thing?
 
   Feb-02-12 K Treybal vs K Moll, 1907 (replies)
 
whittaker: <James D Flynn> I assume you meant 20 ... h5 as a defensive try. White can just play 21 Qxe5 and be two pawns up and continue the K attack with Rf1, etc.

whittaker: Sorry, link above didn't post properly.

whittaker: @rilkefan: 7 ... Bd7 threatens ... Nxe5 winning a piece.
 
   Nov-30-11 J Schulz Sr vs B Kostic, 1926 (replies)
 
whittaker: OK, thanks gofer et al for the tutorials on winning a won game... I was having trouble in the variations I was playing, because I was either allowing R/Q incursions on my 1st and 2nd ranks, with mating/queening or perpetual check threats, or else I was trading off everything and ...

whittaker: Or better yet (as found by crafty) if 15... f5 16 Bg5 f6 17 Qg6+ Kh8 18 exf6!
 
   Jan-09-11 G Schnitzler vs Eberle, 1861
 
whittaker: Why didn't Black play 9... Ke8 ? White has 10. Nf7 or 10. Qh5+ but neither one looks like a clear win. What am I missing?
