Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-19-04  morphynoman2: I need help for this endgame. It was a draw?
Sep-19-04  nikolaas: I doubt it was. What can white do?
1) 63.Ke3 Kb3 and the c pawn starts to move.
2) 63.Be1 c3 64.Bxc3 e3
Sep-19-04  clocked: <nikolaas> 63.Be1 c3 64.Bxc3 e3 65.Bb4 e2 66.Ke3 and?
Sep-19-04  actinia: 63. Be1 Kd1 and 64. ... Ke2 with a winning penetration by black into the kingside. for instance 64.Bf2 Ke2 65.Be3 c3

other tries by white lose the g3 pawn and the game.

if instead 63. Bd6 for instance, black walks his king on f3, threatening K takes pawn and to push e3. white can only stop this with a king on d4 and bishop of f4, then black moves his bishop with zugzwang.

Sep-19-04  clocked: win the g-pawn, Bb1, c-pawn push, e-pawn push, and if necessary g-pawn push and black wins is one solution.
Sep-19-04  Maroczy: I set the final position up in Fritz 8 and ran the Shootout feature; it took 38 moves for black to mate.What Fritz did was liquidate everything but black's g and h pawns wchich promoted to Queens and that was it for white.
Sep-19-04  crafty: 63. ♗e1 ♔b3 64. ♗d2 ♗f1 65. ♔xe4 c3   (eval -3.18; depth 21 ply; 1000M nodes)
