Jun-11-06  jamesmaskell: Such an incredible win by Kramnik that no one can recall the moves...even the database!
Jun-11-06  Petrocephalon: Typically, if a game can't be viewed in My Chess, it will still be viewable in one of the other Java Viewers.

  plang: Too bad the moves aren't available; it was a really interesting endgame.
Sep-02-06  Petrocephalon: But they are available: use Sjkbase.
Dec-20-15  nummerzwei: Mednis claims that 57...Be2+ keeps Black's fortress intact (and by implication leads to an easy draw). There is nothing obviously wrong with this, but curiously Mueller's later notes ( in 'How to Play Chess Endgames') fail to mention the move despite the Mednis book being in his bibliography.
