Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-07-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: 41.a3 + 43.b3 and pawn can safely be promoted.
Aug-07-19  Vermit: It is instructional how Black manages to lose his extra pawn and end up in a hopeless endgame. 18...f5 was a mistake, unless followed up by 19... Kf7!? Black underestimated the counterplay after 19... Nxf5. But then he should thought first how to bring his rooks into play and not moving his most active piece.
Aug-07-19  Vermit: 20...Nxh4 compounded the error. Again 20...Kf7 would be preferable

A possible line is 20... Kf7 21. Rag1 Bf6 22. hxg5 hxg5 23. Nc1 Nxd4 24. cxd4 Bxd4+ 25. Kf1 Bxg1 26. Rxg1 Rh2 27. Ba5 Rxb2 28. Rxg5 Rh8, with the threats of 29...Rh1 or 29...Rh2. This line also shows how poorly placed Lange's bishop and knight are, allowing Wuelfing to win the exchange.
