Jan-28-05  Ingolf: After 90.Kc2 I think this game belongs in the picturesque-positions-collection.
Feb-17-09  WhiteRook48: I think so, too.

  wwall: It looks like 92...Bg5?? is the losing move. Black should have played 92...f1=Q 93.Rxf1 Bg3 and it is a book draw. After 94.Rd4 Kxf1 95.Kxd2 (or 95.Rxd2) there is no win in this rook vs bishop endgame.
Feb-16-17  Straclonoor: After 80.Rb8 Lomonosov TB7 gives - mate in 37.
Feb-16-17  Straclonoor: One addition:
After 32 moves was only one way to keep advantage - 33.Rc8
