Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-26-04  mrdasd: Just curious if anyone knows the circumstances of this game. Since this was game 2, it was not a case of Black not needing to win. Unless, Black was in time pressure, I cannot understand the draw. All my database sources give the same result. Despite the opposite colored Bishops and Rook pawn, this should still be a win with the pawns this far apart, unless I missed a resource.
Oct-27-04  mrdasd: Sorry, should have checked this more closely before posting. It's a clear draw with the Rook pawn.
Nov-29-09  heuristic: mo' better moves:

23.Qd2 Bxf1 24.Kxf1 Qd7 25.Nf7 Qb5+

25.Kf2 Rxe3 26.Kxe3 Bxf1 27.Bxf1 Nd5+

  dernier loup de T: Anderssen missed his last chance to win this endgame at move 52: ...52...bxa4 was better and the difference with the game is very instructive: after 53. bxa4 c4-+ the issue should have been different!...
