Jan-27-06  DanRoss53: Now *THAT'S* impressive. For those of you without a computer or the ability to memorize endgame tables: 75... ♔c6 76. ♗d3 ♔c7 77. ♗e4 ♔d8 78. ♔d6 ♔e8 79. ♗g6+ ♔d8 80. ♘c5 ♔c8 81. ♗d3 ♔d8 82. ♘e6+ ♔c8 83. ♗a6+ ♔b8 84. ♔c6 ♔a7 85. ♘c5 ♔b8 86. ♔b6 ♔a8 87. ♗b7+ ♔b8 88. ♘a6#
Jan-27-06  Mameluk: The critical moment of the game is Cheparinov´s 24. Na5. After 24. Rxe4-Sxe4 25. Rxe4-Bxf2 white´s knight stands bad and for example 26. Na5-Rd3! is with nice counterplay of black. With Na5 Chepa gained a tempo and after Nc6 his pieces are simply brilliant. But...

Ba8? - if I remember it was very quickly played. Navara had an easy response 24... Bxf2+ 25. Rxf2-Nxf2 and now Kxf2 is Rd2+ and 26. Nxb7-Rd2 with many threats. 27. Nd6-Nxh3+ 28. gxh3-Rxd6 and black is at least kicking. My comments on Wijk B site about 42... Bc1 are rubbish, it was lost anyway.

  cu8sfan: <DanRoss53> It's got nothing to do with endgame tables. Every chess player and especially masters should know how to checkmate with ♔♗♘ vs. ♔.

If you're a member of ICC type "play kbnk" to try it against an engine.

Feb-15-06  dakgootje: <Every chess player and especially masters should know how to checkmate with ♔♗♘ vs. ♔.> any suggestions then? as i wouldnt have a clue how to win, expect maybe trying to get your opponents king of the edge of board...
Feb-15-06  MorphyMatt: Black could have resigned after 56. ♗xb5
Feb-15-06  MorphyMatt: might help.
Feb-15-06  MorphyMatt:
might also help.
Feb-15-06  MorphyMatt: To test yourself try
