  ketchuplover: 16...Bxa6 looks playable to me.

Why did black resign? Isn't 53...Kf1 good enough for a draw?

May-29-09  totololo: This is how a master can fool you in a draw game .... better learn basic endings!
May-29-09  shalgo: If 53...Kf1, then 54.f5! gxf5 55.Qf4+

If 15...Bxa6, then 16.Rxd6 Rxd6 17.Re1--White has queen for rook and bishop, though Black's position is solid.

Was O'Donnell playing for a win in the ending? Does White have anything if black just plays 35...Kc5 and then shuffles his king back and forth?

Mar-19-20  tomohawk52: Yes, I was playing for the win. It was a miscalculation in time trouble. Back then no electronic clocks, so no increment. :-D
