Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-12-04  Resignation Trap: Can anyone spot some improvements for Yates from moves 41-44 ?
Feb-12-04  drukenknight: hmmmm unless I am missing something: 41. ... Qf1+ 42. Kg4 Qe2+ 43. Kxh4 g5+ 44. Kg3 Bf4+ drops NImzo's Queen.

Hmm, I wonder what Nimzovitch wrote in his annotations? No doubt a brilliant draw.

Feb-13-04  Resignation Trap: Right you are, drukenknight. Yates also had more than one opportunity to play this continuation!

  perfidious: Horowitz gives the main line of his improvement over Yates' play 43.Qf3 f5+, winning, though it's immaterial.

  wwall: Instead of 42...Qc2+, perhaps best is 42...Qe2+ 43.Kh1 Kh8 44.Qc8+ Kh7 45.Qf5+ Kh6 46.Nxf6 Qd1+ 47.Kg2 Qg1+ 48.Kf3 Qh1+ 49.Ke2 Qxh2+ 50.Kf1 Qh1+ 51.Ke2 Qg2+ 52.Ke1 Qd2+ 53.Kf1 Qd1+ 54.Kg2 Qe2+ 55.Kh1 Qe1+ 56.Kg2 Qg3+ 57.Kf1 gxf6 58.Qxf6+ Qg6 59.Qxh4+ Kg7 60.Qe7+ Qf7+ 61.Qxf7+ Kxf7 and Black wins.
Apr-19-19  bobbyperezchess: 44...a5?? just draws. Instead, 44...Qg1+! 45.Kf3 Qf1+! 46.Kg4 Qe2+ 47.Kxh4 (47.Qf3 loses to 47...f5+ -+) g5 48.Kg3 Bf4+, winning the queen and the game.
