Kibitzer's Corner
May-26-09  Cardinal Fang: This game deserves to be better known; surprised there has been no kibitzing for it yet. The final position is macabre.
Jul-22-09  backrank: Black wins simply by the knight route Ne6-g5-e4-d2. White loses its rook.
Jul-22-09  guaguanco: Even worse, black will aim his knight to e1. If white posts his rook on f1, black waits till white's pawn moves run out, then white is in zugzwang and must play Rxf1...

Nice observation of yours. If White plays b4 to prevent the journey Ne6-c5-d3-e1, Black plays Ne6-d8-c6-e5-d3-e1 and achieves the same. Daemonic and sardistic. I hope I will never lose that way :)

This game and especially its finish definitely deserves more attention. Highly interesting and instructive.
