Sep-16-09  Whitehat1963: Why is this over?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Pawn and Two: <Whitehat1963> It was the end, for White! Other databases show that White resigned after 44...Re3.

Fritz indicates that White's best try after 44...Re3, is 45.Bf1. Black then still has to be careful.

The tempting line: 45...Rxc3? 46.Kxb6 Rf3 47.Bg2 Ra3 48.b5 Rxa2 49.Bxb7 h3, only leads to a draw, per the Nalimov tables, by 50.Kc5, 50.Bd5, 50.Be4, 50.Bf3, or 50.Bh1.

After 45.Bf1, Fritz indicates a win for Black by: (-3.09) (25 ply) 45...Re6! 46.a4 Kg7 47.c4 Kf6 48.Bg2 Rc6! 49.a5 bxa5 50.bxa5 Rc7! 51.c5 Rg7 52.Bh3 Rg3 53.Bc8 Ke5, (-4.91) (23 ply) 54.Kc4 Ra3 55.Kb4 Ra1, and Black is winning.

Perhaps the game was adjourned after 44...Re3, and the win was realized during the adjourment period, or perhaps White sealed a move other than 45.Bf1, and realized he was lost. For instance, if 45.Bc4 Rxc3, (-5.46) (25 ply) 46.Be6 Kg7 47.Bd7 Rc6 48.a4 Kf6 49.Bh3 Ke5, and the h-pawn will soon cost White his bishop.

  Pawn and Two: After 44...Re3 45.Bf1, another tempting but incorrect line for Black is, 45...h3? 46.Bxh3 Rxh3 47.Kxb6 Rxc3, and White will be able to draw by: 48.a4 Kg7 49.Kxb7 Kf6 50.a5, or 48.Kxb7 Rc4 49.b5 Kg7 50.b6, or 48.b5 Kg7 49.Kxb7 Kf6 50.b6.
Sep-17-09  Whitehat1963: Thanks, <Pawn and Two>, but I think you just proved that it was probably still too early to resign. You never know when your oppenent is going to make a bad move, and the result wasn't yet clear. Probable, but not clear.

  Louben: Anyway, it seems that there is a mistake. The result should be 0-1 instead of 1-0.
