Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-12-04  molinov: Is this endgame lost, where did Campora go wrong?.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Fusilli: <molinov> I am only looking at the final position, and yes, not only is the endgame lost, but there is not much of an endgame coming up. Black will get mated soon. White will check next on c6, liquidate the a6 and/or d6 pawn/s, and push either the a or d pawn forward (depending on where the Black king chose to go) with unstoppable mate.

  whiteshark: "Basically, Black played a passive opening and violated some of the basic ideas of chess: he gave up the fight for space in the centre, he gave up his bishop for the knight. If you repeatedly give the opponent permanent advantages in this way without getting anything in return, you end up in a bad place."
