Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-06-07  outsider: no kibitzing for this game??! But it's a great game. the zugzwang is original. i have never seen anything like that before.
Oct-06-07  sharkw: Nice touch at the end: Black avoids 65...Rxg2 66. Kf3 and finds the most accurate finish. A king move loses the f4 pawn, while most bishop moves lose the h6 pawn and free Black's king. So after 66. Bf8 Rxg2 67. Kf3 Rc2 68. Bg7 (or 68. Kxg3 Rxc3+) g2 Black wins cleanly.
