  beatgiant: <aw1988: Don't see why Nimzowitsch agreed to a draw.> Hmm... 50. Kf4 Bxf5 51. Kxf5 Rxa3 52. Rc7+ Kd8 53. Ra7 Rb3 54. Rxa4 Rb6 with a book draw.
Feb-04-05  euripides: <aw> After 50 Kf4 Bxf5 51 Kxf5 Rf2+ 52 Ke4 Ra2 53 Rc3 Ke6 I don't think White can make progress. 51...Rxa3 should also draw, I think, but looks trickier.

<51...Rxa3 should also draw, I think, but looks trickier.> You may be right, so now I offer the more careful line 50. Kf4 Bxf5 51. Kxf5 Rxa3 52. Rc7+ Kf8! 53. Kf6 Rf3+ 54. Ke6 Rb3 55. Rc8+ Kg7, with a position that would be a book draw without the a-pawn. I don't think the presense of the a-pawn makes a difference here.
Feb-04-05  euripides: <beat> yes, that looks right to me - though personally I'd feel safer playing 51...Rf2+ as the drawing method after 55...Kg7 is quite easy to mess up.
Feb-04-05  aw1988: Ah, right. Sorry, I forgot about that line.
