Aug-06-04  ArturoRivera: Great game, here white looses anyway, lets say 103.-Ke5 Re4#, or lets say 103.-Ke3 Rd3+ 104.-Ke2 Rd2+!! 105.-Qxd2 Rc3! snatching the queen and the pawn promotes, make a very strong note that 104.-...Rc3+! also snatch the queen via 105.-Qxc2 Re3+! 106.- Kxe3 Bxc2 107.-Kf4 Kh5 and white promotes the pawn in the very favorable ending of K+B+P vs K. Noting that 103.-Kg3 follow the same line, beacause if 103.-...Rd3+ 104.-Kh4?? Rh3#. (all the other moves of the king in move 104 besides Kh4 fall into the lines previously explained)
Aug-15-05  Runemaster: Kottnauer outlasts one of the great endgame players/theorists in a long endgame. Earlier, Black had a lot of defence to do, but White was unable to break through with his attack.
