  kevin86: The early moves of this game are mostly long,sweeping moves by the heavy pieces and bishops. An unusual ending ensues-double exchange for three pawns. The draw looks impossible,but when black misses the brilliant saving clause,he goes down to defeat.
Apr-30-05  The Backward Pawn: Holy Diagonals Batman!
Apr-30-05  ThomYorke: There are players that donīt seem to be good at endgames.
Apr-30-05  mr. nice guy: An amazing game. Actually two games for the price of one. One game before queens were traded, a frenzy of criss-crossing bishops and then a nice bishops vs. rooks endgame. Great!
Apr-30-05  Jatayu: 64...bxa6 was the first thing i thought of, in the first glance at the board. But i certainly didn't think it through well enough to get full credit. It just looked so obvious.

  Sneaky: Cool. I have to admit the move jumped out at me but I didn't understand all of the nuances.
Apr-30-05  cjhasbrouck: Look at me, I got a Saturday puzzle.
Apr-30-05  Saph: <The Backward Pawn> Holy Diagonals is right! My eyes are zigzagging now... I'd better not drive for a while.
Apr-30-05  Madman99X: I thought Be4? at first controling both queening squares, but that loses abruptly to Rb4!

Bxa6 works according to my computer, but at first glance, it looked like white could pick off both pawns after Rxa6.

Apr-30-05  bangkokgambit: I saw Bxa6,and I knew that it was a best move but I still skeptical that this move can equalize in this position, I'm trying to find another reply for white
Apr-30-05  JohnBoy: This is a beautiful game of survival by black. I saw ...Bxa6 only because I couldn't find a surviving line with any other move - I finally asked if white can win against the two pawns on the sixth and answered "no". Would have been a wonderful finish to a fine game.

  patzer2: <64...?, Black to "plan and draw"> Well I gave give myself half credit because I did "plan," and got as far as figuring out that for a try in today's solution 64...Bxa6! 65. Rxa6 h3! gives White a lot of problems to solve. However, I wasn't certain whether it led to a "draw."
Apr-30-05  scientific socialism: What about Kg3! That would have been even better.

  patzer2: Analysis with Fritz 8 follows:

64... Bxa6! 65. Rxa6 [transposing is 65. Rf6+ Kg3 66. Rxa6 h3!=(or 65. Rf6+ Kg3 66. Rxa6 Kf3! 67. Rh6 e2! 68. Rf6+ Ke3 69. Re6+ Kf3= also works)] 65... h3! 66. Ra4+ [also leading to the draw is 66. Rf6+ Kg3 67. Rg6+ Kf3 68. Rh6 Kg3 69. Kf1 h2 70. Rh8 e2+! 71. Kxe2 Kg2 72. Rg8+ Kh1! = (not 72... Kh3?? 73. Kf2 )] 66... Kf3 67. Ra2 Kg3 68. Re2 Kf3 69. Kf1 Kf4 70. Rh2 Kg3 71. Kg1 Kg4 72. Rc2 Kf3 73. Rb2 Kg3 74. Ra2 Kf3=

  patzer2: <What about Kg3!> If you mean 64...Kg3? 65. a7! , then it is not better.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Gypsy: 64...Kg3? 65.a7 Be4 66.Re6 Kf3 (66...B~ 67.Rxe3+ ) 67.Rxe4 Kxe4 68.a8Q+ .
Apr-30-05  MatrixManNe0: <Kg3 move> I saw 64... Kg3 65. a7 e2 66. a8=Q e1=Q#, but 66. Re6 ends that.
Apr-30-05  bishopmate: i got this one... sort of easy
Apr-30-05  dac1990: The first Saturday puzzle that I've gotten.
Apr-30-05  aw1988: Yeah, it is quite easy.
Apr-30-05  queensknight: Sorry for being blind to this, but after 11. Nxb5, why doesn't black just take the rook (Bxa1)?
Apr-30-05  aw1988: queensknight, you're right. Taking the rook was a better move.
Apr-30-05  beenthere240: It is ONLY easy if you're told there's a drawing option. What else? If you're playing the game as black, you're already in the showers at move 64.
Apr-30-05  aw1988: Sure, but it's a puzzle, don't forget.
