Oct-31-05  KingG: Was this a blitz game?
Oct-31-05  iron maiden: Somebody was short on time at the end, at least. Doesn't 59...Kd6 draw?
Jan-28-06  Bacon Short: <TruthHurts> should see this game.
Jul-01-07  mathematician: is it a draw if black plays 59.kd8?
Jan-28-08  timhortons: do playchess.com require membership fee?looks like strong players like wise play there
Jan-28-08  Open Defence: <timhortons> you can play for free as a guest, i do that but i might get a membership as i really like it, seems a touch better than icc, you do find strong players both on playchess and icc, maybe there are a fair share of computer users but either way your playing strength will mostly benefit from the experience
Jan-28-08  timhortons: <open defence> thanks for the info. ill go check at that site.
Aug-25-08  4tmac: White wins with 59. Ke7! which prevents 59. ... Kd6! or Kd8! both of which would indeed have drawn.
