Sep-22-10  freakclub: Nice win by Gelfand. A classic case of Good Knight vs Bad Bishop.

  Domdaniel: A beautiful finish. Gelfand offers to exchange Knight for Bishop several times, each time leading to a won pawn ending for White. In the final position, the Bishop is lost.

  Domdaniel: If 48.Nf6+ Bxf6 49.Kxf6 Kd7 50.Kf7 Kd6 51.Ke8! (51.Kf6 is a draw) ...Kc6 52.Ke7 wins.
Feb-11-20  tigreton: What a game! A masterpiece by one of the greatest successors of Rubinstein. One advantage is transformed into another one until the position is won: domination of the c-file, space and, eventually, a much better minor piece and a more active King.
