Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-09-05  rexeterna: Nice example of endgame instruction.

  al wazir: The outside passed pawns win again. But they wouldn't have been passed if black hadn't played 31...g5 (I like 31...Kf5), and then traded his h pawn for white's f pawn and his g pawn for white's b pawn.

  khense: As of move 28: I guess white has some advantage, inasmuch as his pawns are connected. However I would like to think that black should have been able to draw this one.
Oct-09-05  lopium: Funny end, white hesitated to sacrifice his last knight.... It seemed like a draw around the 30th move. White has nicely played to catch the win it can means.

  Mateo: 31... g5 ?! gives white a target. After 32. g4, the g5 pawn is weak, and white advantage increases.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Mateo: Better than 36... Nb4?! is 36... Kf6 37. Ne4 Kg6 .
Premium Chessgames Member
  Mateo: 36... Kd5?!. He should have kept the king on the kingside to stop the white g and h pawns. 36... Kf6 37. Ne4 Kg6 38. h4 .
Premium Chessgames Member
  Mateo: After 41... Kd6 and 42... Ke7, it becomes obvious that 39... Kd5?! was a loss of time.

  kevin86: White gracefully avoided the fork at move 54 and soonafter sent his second pawn to capture the poor,cornered knight.
Oct-09-05  EmperorAtahualpa: A nice game of the day, but I must note that I've seen much greater games of the day. Not one move in this game is particularly impressive.
Oct-09-05  tolow4y: it seemed to me like the topa vs. adams game where they were playing for a draw and the WHAMMY!!!!!!!!!!! good night everybody i need a cigarette after that mind screw sort of deal.
Oct-09-05  fred lennox: It is interesting how often a d4 or e4 has a dramatic effect in the games of Andersson. By dramatic i mean a point of no return. Once he does d4 in this game the weakening of pawn structure for black ir forced. After, he simplifies to a won endgame.
