May-28-03  drukenknight: End game play always mistifies me. Why does korchnoi give up? Is there a forced continuation?
May-28-03  MoonlitKnight: Probably because black can't prevent 52. Ld2+ Kg7 53. Kg5, and then on 54. h6, hell is loose.
May-29-03  drukenknight: On the ending I am thinking of something like: 51...Ng7 52 Bxg7 Kxg7 53 Kg5 a4 54 h6+ Kh8 55 g7+ Kh7 56 Kf6

Can this hold?

Apr-18-07  mannetje: Nope... the ending is completely lost.
51...Ng7???? doesn't seem to improve anything: 52.Bd2#

  whiteshark: <37...Nf4?> was the losing move. He should have played <37...f6> instead,

e.g. <38.Re3 Nf4 39.Rxc3+ Kd7 40.Rf3 Kxe7 41.Rxf4 Rc8>, which looks equal.
