Kibitzer's Corner
May-24-06  Hongkonger: Excellent endgame technique from Adams, though 48...Ke6 is the sort of blunder that I would make. It always encourages me when I see a 2500+ GM do something like that.
May-25-06  ChessPieceFace: <Hongkonger> how come 48...Ke6 is a blunder? is 48...Kc8 the better way to go?
May-25-06  pulsar: 48...Kc6 would be better to hold the pawn in b6, I think that's what Hongkonger means...
May-25-06  ChessPieceFace: <pulsar> oh yeah, duh. it takes me awhile to work these things through sometimes. thanks for helping me along.
May-25-06  Hongkonger: <ChessPieceFace> Well I think Adams would have won anyway, but dropping the b6 pawn so quickly certainly made the win easier.
May-25-06  pulsar: ChessPieceFace, we all overlook some things. I don't play very well in endgames, anyway. Welcome.=)
Dec-24-07  Shajmaty: I cannot believe 18...c5?! is the way for Black to equalize.
