Mar-31-12  Dr. Siggy: Here's the position after White's 96th move:


click for larger view

Portisch draws this <♖ + ♗ vs ♖ endgame> using the so-called Cochrane Defense: 96... ♖e1!

The <Cochrane Defense> works when (1) the defending Rook pins the Bishop to the King on one of the four central files (c through f) or ranks (3 through 6), and (2) there are two or more ranks or files (respectively) between the Kings.

  Jonathan Sarfati: The accurate defence by Black meant that all White could achieve was another Cochrane position rotated 90°.
Oct-25-21  theturtlemoves: 70...Kd7 must be a transcription error not sure how to report that
