Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-07-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: I don't believe what i just saw! Both sided back-rank-mate threats, seemingly unsurmountable material deficit by white, queen promotion, unearthly fight for draw by white finishing with black's fiasco. And the trouble is - i don't even know where black went wrong.

  louispaulsen88888888: Black’s last chance was 77...RxB. Then 78 white queens and black takes the last pawn. Drawn ending.

  louispaulsen88888888: I must correct my previous comment. Black still has a draw with 78...Ne6.

An infamous fiasco. Black should keep the Rook on the 1st rank and play 74..Rh8! eg 75 a6 Rh7+ 76 Kc8 (76 Kb8 Nb4 -+) 76..Kc6 77 a7 Kxb6 -+

After 74..Rc4? 75 a6 the win is gone.

78..Nd7?? completed the disaster: 78..Rxa7! 79 Bxa7 Na6 80 b5 Nc5 81 Kc7 Na4 followed by ..Kc4 forces a draw.
