Jul-03-06  thatsmate: Can someone explain to me why 57. ...Kf8 doesnt draw/ win for black? I see 57. Kf8. Now white can't move his bishop and pushing the pawn would be stupid, so white's king must move, say 58. Ke8. Black responds with 58. ...h3. Then white has no realistic other choice but to push his pawn, so 59. f7, leading to 59. ...a3. Then white is at a loss- it cannot move any of its peices without losing.

What am I not seeing?

  Honza Cervenka: <I see 57. Kf8. Now white can't move his bishop...> Of course, he can move his Bishop on b1 and a2. It is sufficient. Black will run out with Pawn moves pretty soon. The game could continue 57...Kf8 58.Kg6 h3 59.f7 a3 60.Bb1 a2 (or 60...Ke7 61.Kg7 and 62.f8=Q) 61.Bxa2 b1=Q+ 62.Bxb1 Ke7 63.Kg7 etc.
