Jan-05-08  armtwister: Perfect Example of Bad Bishop vs Good Knight Endgame!!!
Jan-05-08  CapablancaFan: Black's bishop stinks to high heaven here, and falls because of it.
May-08-15  zanzibar: Euwe discusses Grigoriev's analysis of this game in Example #143 (p90) of his book <A Guide to Chess Endings>, from move 74.

After 48...Bc8 Khan plays nicely at this point, locking Black's king behind his own 4th rank, and seeing the fantastic knight maneuver - b6-c5-d6-f4.

Jan-10-16  rookpawn101: Flawless endgame technique displayed by The Sultan! I often wonder where he learnt it all? An underappreciated gem.
