Apr-26-05  takeithome: Black might be technically winning, but after 53 hxg7 ♗xd2 he must convert a King-Knight-Bishop versus King endgame, which is a most unenviable task for anyone. For some reason I feel that White's extra pawns do him a disservice here, but maybe Ribli (just to poke fun at Korchnoi) should have tried to make his opponentn work for the point.
Apr-26-05  aw1988: Ummm... this is Korchnoi. This is 1989. Do you honestly expect him to miss KBN vs K?
Apr-26-05  takeithome: <aw1988> I've read that it can take 33 moves from an unfavorable start.
Apr-26-05  aw1988: Sure, but Korchnoi is patient.
Apr-26-05  takeithome: <aw1988> That is an excellent point. I've read somewhere that Korchnoi has a decided preference for reversed openings and unusual fianchetto schemes. That's originality.
Apr-26-05  aw1988: Merely one of the hundreds of weapons of knowledge at his lengthy disposal.

  Gypsy: KBN vs K is straight forward -- 1. push K to the edge, (2) heard K to the right corner, (3) find a checkmate -- done that many times. But once I tried to see if I could make just any progress in K+2N vs K+P. Never left the center of the board. Felt dizzy for two days afterwards.
