Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-25-05  chesscrazy: What kind of opening name is this? ...Sicilian Invitation? I guess it means inviting white to play 2.e4 or whatever but it still sounds weird.

  An Englishman: Good Afternoon: I agree, chesscrazy--esp. since the whole line transposes into a Symmetrical English with Nf3 vs. the Botvinnik formation.

Incidentally, it's curious that Black picked an odd moment to resign--White hasn't driven him to a dark sqare corner. Perhaps the game had been adjourned here and Black assumed that White would book up on the ending.

Dec-26-05  chesscrazy: <An Englishman> You're right, black did pick a strange time to resign. A probability is that black thought white had an immediate win or something. I still have trouble with bishop+knight mates, which means if I was in white's position it would take me a pretty long time to just drive a king into a corner, let alone the right one.
Jun-15-09  WhiteRook48: I couldn't care less about bishop+knight mates because of their rarity

  FSR: 76.Ne7! Kf6 77.Be3! is the standard way to keep the king from escaping to the "wrong" corner. Evidently Hepting didn't know it.
