Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-16-04  marcus13: I dont see why white resign.
Feb-16-04  drukenknight: yeah I dont either, 27 Re5 might be trickier.
Feb-16-04  Benjamin Lau: I would not resign either, but I suspect that zugzwang may be coming soon, and even if it doesn't, black's bishop is a tremendous threat with pawns on both sides.
Feb-16-04  drukenknight: B better than N? Maybe this endgame will be the final proof?
Feb-16-04  tud: It's easy to draw this game. There is b4 and f4. Probably it was a draw...
Mar-15-04  mtalfan104: White probably just ran out of time. Or did they use clocks back then?

  Benzol: It's more likely they used Sandglasses.
The Sandglass was free from mechanical breakdown but was prone to be affected by humidity. Clocks superseded them in the 1880's.
