Kibitzer's Corner
May-15-05  paladin at large: Veressov could have saved himself a lot of time with 68. Bxf5+ followed by 69. Kxd5.

There was a war on and a lot of people were not in top form.....

May-15-05  slapwa: 68. Bxf5+, Kxf5 69. Kxd5, d3 and the black d pawn queens.
May-15-05  paladin at large: <slapwa> Oops!! Thanks. How about 68. Bxf5+ 69. Kxd4

(Veressov had an opportunity earlier to go up two pawns, but with bishops of opposite color, and did not take it.)

May-16-05  slapwa: No - 68. Bxf5+, Kxf5 69. Kxd4 is just a standard opposite bishops draw. Black just plays e.g. 69. ..., Bb3 and then Bd1, Bb3 &c and White cannot make headway.
May-16-05  paladin at large: <slapwa> Thanks - my apologies to Veressov. I am going to look at this long ending again more carefully and with more respect - these situations do come up.
May-16-05  fgh: Fantastic endgame!
