Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-01-02  borgianus: A sad game. He who has played better had lost. Chess is not always fair.

  Sneaky: At what point to you believe Black was winning?
Jul-02-02  borgianus: I mean not exactly winning, but not lost. After 40. Kd2 I think black is not lost at all. I think black deserved more than a zero.
Oct-16-02  Outcast Searcher: Huh? Borgianus, after 41 Kd2, it's just a matter of whether black can get a perpetual check (which IMO he clearly can't). Otherwise Dreev simply walks the b pawn in. The endgame is the only part of chess I can actually claim to have a bit of decent knowledge in, and this looks pretty textbook to me. After one more spite check from e8, Kc7 beautifully prevents any more of that. Do you have a line from black's 41 in mind that could have prevented white from walking the pawn in, or at least the K toward the b pawn, and then the pawn in?
Oct-16-02  drukenknight: 41....Qb7 seems like a better choice, can he save it? not sure.
