Feb-02-11  madhatter5: Ulf Andersson is a genius. He develops, provokes miniscule pawn weaknesses, and then moves all his pieces backwards to drive his opponents insane. They then start to go crazy, and let him reach an endgame where those miniscule weaknesses will be exploited in 80-something moves. AMAZING!
Oct-20-11  Old King Cole: Fine artistic endgame by the Swedish GM as black here, using the KP/K stalemate (and its avoidance) theme, defying Zugzwang, and blocking. A good study would push it up 12-13 moves for a [black] to play and win.
