  beatgiant: <BadTemper: 76. Kf2!? Im totally confused.> With White's pieces tied down and Black's e-pawn hard to stop, White looks lost by this time. For example, 76. Kg3 e3 77. Kf3 e2 78. Kf2 Ng2, and White can't prevent the pawn from queening.

With 76. Kf2, White probably hopes to free his pieces and block the e-pawn, for example 76...Nxh3 77. Ke3 Kd5 78. Nd2 etc.

  GrahamClayton: Nimzowitsch mentions in "Chess Praxis" that this game took 12 hours to play, and he considered it one of his best endgames. The Black knight maneuvre is very instructive.
Jan-12-18  Jimmy720: I'm viewing this on my phone, and it says that 18. Bf1 is the last move.
