Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-16-07  Whitehat1963: Back and forth with the passed pawns until finally ....

Black wins a huge upset: 222 Elo points (classical time controls) in a major tournament.

Jan-07-09  KingG: White got nothing out of the opening, and then tried too hard to win a drawn endgame. Trading into a R+B vs R+N endgame looks very dangerous to me as the bishop should normally be better in this open position.

36.Rd1 was just a blunder. Probably White just missed 36...Bd2!.
