Jun-30-04  InspiredByMorphy: Oh Fuey! Another "duck the king in the corner" draw. I learned a lesson in this technique with the following game. Hanstein vs Von Der Lasa, 1839

  beatgiant: I was surprised that Alekhine didn't manage to win this game, since he was up a pawn with two bishops against two knights on move 45.

What if instead of 46...Bxe2, he instead plays 46...Bb5. By keeping the light bishop, he would avoid the problem he had in the game where his remaining dark bishop couldn't control the queening square of the h-pawn.

For example, 46...Bb5 47. Nd4 Bf1 48. Nxf5 Rxh3. This seems to give Black more winning chances than in the game. Any idea why Alekhine didn't try this?

Jul-13-07  Autoreparaturwerkbau: 66.Nc4! If dxc4, then bxc4 and king to the corner. Draw.

Lovely drawing resource.

Jun-12-08  pwt: How is this a draw? 77... h2 78. Kg2 Bg1 Or am I missing something here?
Jun-12-08  Manic: <pwt> White's king just oscillates from g2 to h1 and black can't force any promotion.
