Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-26-05  Whitehat1963: Player of the Day pulls off a clever endgame win against Shirov.
Mar-26-05  beachbum: <Whitehat1963> What was the losing move?
Mar-26-05  Whitehat1963: I'm not that good of a chessplayer and don't have access to a computer, so I won't hazard a guess about the losing move. But I do think that 53. Rxe2 sealed the win.
Mar-26-05  beachbum: But at that point Hertneck had already to connected passed pawns on the queenside. The key mistake must have come earlier, no?
Mar-26-05  Whitehat1963: I'm certain you're right. I would point to 27. Bxg6, picking up the extra pawn as one key to the win. Hertneck seems to dictate the play from there on, but I'm merely guessing.
Mar-26-05  beachbum: Maybe letting the knight into b6 and losing control of the c file was Shirov's undoing. Or 12...a5 pushing a pawn on the already vulnerable queenside was not quite right.
Dec-18-08  apexin: well played.
