Kibitzer's Corner

  Sneaky: Computers play on and on until checkmate has been achieved... how instructive for ♔♗♘ vs ♔ mates!

What I don't understand, though, is why White chose to run into the "wrong" corner (the one of the same color as the bishop). E.g., instead of 54.Kf5 how about 54.Kd6, making a break for a8, where Black will still have to perform the time-consuming manuveur of forcing him to run to another corner.

Because white was a computer made in 1988

Feb-23-07  DMBFan23: was there a tablebase for this mate when this match was played? I'd be super impressed if it was done with the computers eval function....
Jan-10-09  WhiteRook48: this guy played rather badly as a computer, but that's because it happened in 1988 anyway.
Feb-08-09  WhiteRook48: 66...Kh3 was better
Jun-18-18  Omnipotent00001: 58...c3 mates in 12 moves.
