Feb-20-08  Knight13: Wow, that king-march at the end up the board is really impressive. Cost Blackburne the bishop and gave Mackenzie a rook up! Who would've seen it coming?
Jan-18-15  lame duck: Wonderful game! What is really amazing is how the white king, like a trapper, captured the black king. By the way, 50.Ra1 was not needed, white could play 50. Rh8, because in the pawn endgame occuring after 50... e1Q 51. Rxg8+ Qe8 52. Rxe8+ Kxe8 white wins easily: 53. Ke6 Kd8 54. Kf7 Kc8 55. Ke7 Kb8 56. Kd7 - zugzwang.
Sep-24-19  SymphonicKnight: 44...kc8? was the losing move. 44...a6 or 44...a5 was necessary for the draw.
