Feb-06-06  larrewl: <Eric Schiller> This game is marked as annotated. Did <> leave out the annotation or incorrectly mark this as annotated? By the way, I'm sure that I'm one of many who really appreciate your generous annotation contributions. :)

  WannaBe: <larrewl> From looking at the PGN (by clicking on the 'view' link. The ONLY annotation is on move 48.
Feb-06-06  iamverywellatchess: White can keep moving the pawn until it turns into a queen or horse. Tricky for white but do-able. Black is wise to resine.
Feb-06-06  hintza: If he turned it into a "horse" it would be drawn.

  Eric Schiller: Yes, it seems the threshold for what counts as annotated is rather low. Most of my games have more extensive notes. I haven't had a computer look at any of my kiddie games, of which this is one.
Feb-10-06  sleepkid: ...apparently you and your opponent were too young to offer a draw. (at 15?)

Young kids often don't know when to resign - sometimes you'll see these bare kings running around the board while the other kid tries to figure out how to coordinate 2 rooks, a queen, a knight, a king, and three pawns to deliver mate. (they usually end up promoting another pawn and delivering mate with the two queens.)

...ahh, the joys of coaching youth chess.

Feb-10-06  larrewl: <Wannabe> Thanks for your help. Now I know how to quickly look at annotation! :)

  Eric Schiller: Actually, it isn't too bad a game for a couple of scholastic players. Of course a draw could have been a proper result at many points. Then again, I just watched Korchnoi in Gibraltar squeeze a win with Q+2 vs. Q+1, so you never know ...
Feb-11-06  sleepkid: <Eric Schiller> <...a draw <could> have been a proper result at many point>??? after move 37 the game is a dead draw with proper play. This isn't Bondarevsky vs Keres, 1939 (probably the most difficult theoretical draw to play out.)

your opponent simply blundered the game away. (which is kind of remarkable... to play so evenly through the opening and middle game only to revert to absolute beginner status in the endgame there.)

Still, we tend to be a little bit kinder to the games of our youth, do we not?
