05d_extra passed d-pawn in R+4:3||
Compiled by whiteshark
--*--

What are the pros and contras that the extra pawn is located in the center (and near the rest of the kingside pawns). Does it make defence easier or more difficult? I've no idea... http://www.saidaonline.com/en/news....

Here are the rare examples I've found so far ...

Leko vs Korchnoi, 2008 As you can see in the video Leko's king is on f4. So he'd moved <61.Kf4!>, needless to say the best move in the position.

And it was the final move! Korch resigned (in his typical way?), but they made a few more moves - kind of short post mortem line. Thus the confusion with the gamescore.

SOLVED!
