Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-13-05  IDestroyChess: why is it draw :)
Aug-02-05  fgh: Certainly e6 anytime soon looks promising for black, not to mention that even if he loses the knight, white has no pawns, while black has 4 pawns, and white's king could be cut out of action.
Aug-20-10  DocFox: I agree, the draw seemed a bit premature (although probably inevitable). Sure 4 pawns to 1 is HUGE in an endgame, but with an active Rook, some of that could be mopped up.

Actually black has some potential with passed pawns. I would have played a few more moves to see what happened. Of course, they both might have needed the draw.
