Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-05-03  ruylopez900: A very nice game, gets a little tedious at the end as both players play it extremely well, but also interesting to see how they fit in the pawn moves and all.
Dec-05-03  Catfriend: Very instructive
Dec-05-03  AdrianP: Shades of Schlechter vs Lasker, 1910 in the heavy piece end-game...?
Dec-05-03  technical draw: I think white had a chance at ending it sooner with 53.d6. The pawn cannot be taken, unless I'm missing something.
Dec-05-03  AdrianP: <td> 53. d6 is not a legal move (unless I'm missing something). Do you mean 63. d6!? That does look v. strong 63. ... Rxd6? 64. Ra4!
63. ... cxd6? 64 Re7 Kb8 or Ka8 65. Qb7#

Best for B seems 63. ... Qc5!? (a multi-purpose move) e.g. (i) 64. d7? Qd6+ and Qxd7; (ii) Kxf3?? Ra3! but after (iii) dxc7 Qxc7+, W retains a winning advantage.

I have to say, however, that the game continuation looks just as clear cut.

Dec-05-03  technical draw: <AdrianP> Yes, I do mean 63.d6. (those 60's on the scorecard look like 50's) If after 63.d6, if black plays 63..Qc5?? it's mate in three for white.
Dec-05-03  AdrianP: <td> ... you'll have to talk me through that mate in 3
Dec-05-03  technical draw: <adrianP> After further review, there is no mate in 3. However at 63..Qc5, 64.dxc7 should be the move.
Dec-05-03  OneBadDog: Why not 21. Qf3? It seems that Khalifman could have won a lot quicker. Anybody?
Dec-05-03  technical draw: <OneBadDog> <Why not 21.Qf3?> I think the win for white is not sure without the Queen. If I were black and white played 21.Qf3 I would certainly exchange Queens.
Jan-03-06  GreenDayGuy: OneBadDog; also after 21. Qf3, black will trade queens and then activate his rook with 22... Ra8 making things even harder for white.
Nov-16-07  zealouspawn: I think the text move 63 is strongest, as it finally forces the rook endgame as soon as it is definately winning

I agree - 23. a3 ♖a4 24. ♖a1 c5, and White is going to find it hard to mobilise the Q-side pawns.
