Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-10-05  lentil: 47. ..Kc6 (Kd4 48. b4!) 48. Bd8 Kb5 49. Bf4 Bd4 50. h6 Kb4 51. Be5
Feb-22-08  notyetagm: Tremendously instructive endgame play by Petrosian.
Jun-10-10  Danufane: Can we call it as the typical endgame between good and bad bishop after move 41. Kxe6 ?
Mar-20-22  tbontb: Petrosian as White gains an early positional advantage by precise play. Eventually Gurgenidze feels obliged to simplify to an inferior ending. With 2Bs and effectively a mobile extra pawn, Petrosian expertly converts the advantage into a win. At the end, with suitable technique there is no stopping the passed h-pawn.
