Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-04-07  gambitfan: How many moves would Korchnoļ need to mate practically ? At least 40 moves! After getting rid of both pawns, mating with ♗+♘ is extremely tedious!
Apr-04-07  Bob726: it would only take him 34 moves.
Apr-05-07  gambitfan: Dear <Bob726>,

Your answer surprises me a little bit...

I have read somewhere that a "nude" ♗+♘ may need 36 moves to mate the ♔ing.. In this game, we have first to get rid of these two nasty ♙...

How can you reach a so small number of moves ??

Apr-05-07  slomarko: gambitfan: it depends on the position. if you for example remove the two black pawns in the end position of this game then white can mate in 26 moves. so the 2 black pawns actually cost white 8 moves.
Apr-10-07  Bob726: Put this postion in an endgame tablebase, gambit fan.
