Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-17-06  dhotts: Why did White lose?
Apr-17-06  sharkw: I suspect Black's last move is a typo, of course White may be winning after 42. Kd2 in the game given. Instead 41...Ke3 White is close to being in zuzwang. The king can't move because of ...Kd2, moves by the b-pawn will result in it being rounded up by something like ...Rh8-b8, and bishop moves will lose to ...Rf2-f1 at the right time. The details have to be worked out but the above seems to be a plan?
Apr-17-06  Bobak Zahmat: The final position seems drawish. After spending some time, I could not really see the winning move for Black. And according to Fritz'analyses the position is +0,35. Maybe White did lose on time, or Svetushkin overestimated Black's treats.
Apr-30-09  JohnBoy: Given that black's actual 41st was 41...Ke3, I believe that black has a sure-fire winning plan with ...e5, e4, e3, then ...Kf2. Once the pawn is at e4, the white king cannot approachdue to ...e3+. Black follows ...Kf2 with ...Rh1 and soon forces a queen. The white q-side pawns cannot be pushed without becoming vulnerable to the black rook/bishop team. To me this is hopeless.
Jan-29-12  kuki444: Once the black king is moved, the white cant stop the e6 pawn push without giving up material.
