  Retireborn: A very interesting knight endgame. After 44.Kd4 Black has two potential weaknesses, the pawn on b6 and the passed white e-pawn. He can defend with 44...Nc6+ 45.Kd5 Nb4+ 46.Kd4 Nc6+ 47.Kc3 Kc7 48.e5 Nd8 49.Kd4 Kc6 with ...Ne6 to follow.

After 46.e6 and 47.g4, Black is in big trouble. However Houdini thinks that 51.Ne3 lets the win slip (it likes 51.Nd2 instead) and Black could have drawn with 53...Kxb5. The finish with both sides queening is indeed fascinating.

The game could serve as an example of how a top GM wins by dodging his opponent's theory (with 7.d3) and then just plugging away.
