  bright1: It 100% clear to me why Ji Song resigns. Perhaps lost on time? I think 48. ... Ke6 looks drawish to me.
Jul-09-07  spin: 48. Ke4 makes no sense... as I see it, 48. Kc6 wins... but 48. Ke4 Ke6 seems at best a draw, and possibly a loss for white (didn't do the calculations, but I definitely do not see a win for white).

  Phony Benoni: Yes, 48.Kc6 looks like a win, and 48.Ke4 Ke6 is definitely a draw as White's king can no longer get in. Since 48.Ke5 also wins, I wonder if White actually played that move and we have a notational error.
Jul-09-07  SniperOnG7: It is common practise among many players to put the White King on e4 when White won the game and the Black King on e5 when Black has won. This is probably the case here. Black resigned on move 47.

  Phony Benoni: <SniperOnG7> Interesting. I'd never heard of that practice, but it's probably a better explanation for the finish than anything else which comes to mind. At any rate, it's a nice way of symbolically demonstrating the power of 1.e4.
