Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-24-04  Knight13: Hard fought game. So why not 67... d5 ? This can possibly make this game a draw.
Nov-24-04  InspiredByMorphy: <Knight> 67. ...d5 seems to allow whites rook to get more active than it already is. 67. ...d5 68.Rf6 threatens 69.Rf5 and I fail to see a move which black can play at this point to prevent it. Great game!
Nov-24-04  Knight13: <InspiredByMorphy> 67... d5 68. Rf6 Re4 69. Rf5 Rd4 70. Rxg5 Rd1 71. Ke2! would happen. So I think my suggestion 67... d5? is not a good idea.
Sep-06-05  sneaky pete: Second matchgame with mutual poor play from beginning to end. White could have shortened the agony by playing 42.Nc7 .. winnning the exchange and the game. As our star analyst <mousie> noted, with 67... d5 black could still have saved the game. If 68.Rf6 d4 69.Rf5 Re3+ 70.Kf2 Kh6 (71.Rd5 Re4 72.Kf3 Re3+) and if 68.Rd6 Kg7 and in both cases, with his king under lock and key, white can not make any progress.
Jul-15-11  Articcircle: Nalimovs tablebases say that 83... Ra5!? was a better defending move.
Dec-21-13  thomastonk: Since the ending has attracted some attention, I would like to add that according to Harrwitz' "British Chess Review", volume 1, p 323, White played 68.♖e6 and 69.♖e4.
Jul-30-15  mikposeidon: 67... d5 was draw.

68.Rf6 d4 69.Rf5 Re3+! 70.Kg2 Re4 and if 71.Rxg5 then 71...d3! 72.Rd5 Rxg4= or 72.Kf2 d2 73.Rd5 Rxg4=

46.a5! was winning move - black can not stop white passed pawn or white will make another passed pawn f with g4 and f5
