Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-08-05  chess man: If the pawn becomes a queen then f3+ and if the king captures the pawn it's bishop to f4+ winning the queen. Or if black doesn't take the pawn on g3 it's just as bad since one of the black pawns will queen. Or even a possible checkmate by the pawns,bishop,and king. Splendid game!
Apr-04-08  Vollmer: Considering the stature of these two players is guess the "Patzer opening" comments posted elsewhere are incorrect .
Aug-21-08  TheaN: Just to verify what <chess man> said:


<52.b8=Q> any other move would allow f3 with the same threats, and if still no b8=Q would allow Bf4 stopping the move altogether.


<53.Kg1 Be3 54.Kf1 (Kh1 g2 55.Kh2 g1=Q 0-1) g2 55.Ke1 g1=Q 0-1>

<53.Kf1 g2 54.Ke2 (Kg1 Be3 55.Kh2 g1=Q 0-1) Be3 55.Ke1 g1=Q 0-1>

<53.Kh1 g2 54.Kh2 (Kg1 Be3 55.Kh2 g1=Q 0-1) Bf4 55.Qxf4 Kxf4 >

<53.Kxg3 Bf4 54.Qxf4 gxf4 55.Kf2 c3 >

Dec-03-14  COKEDUDE: Why did white resign? His next move was to get a queen. Even if he couldn't stop all those pawns he could have at least checked the black king all day and drawn the game. Was there a time limit and his time expired?

Lay off the Coke, dude. All is explained in TheaN's post.
