  plang: Ulf Andersson's technique is impressive.
When I first started playing chess this type of game used to bore me to death. Now, I appreciate it much more. You can really improve your endgame technique by studying a game like this.
Nov-07-06  euripides: Beautiful stuff. In this kind of endgame (rook in front of the outside passed pawn) 43 a7 would usually kill White's chances. But here, after the little triangulation (move 44-6)with the king, Black is reduced to allowing a king infiltration probably to the strong square of f5 (if his rook moves off the 1st rank) , or - as happens in the game - playing h6 and Kh7 when Rf8 attacks the loose pawn on f6. These endgames, which are quite common, often turn on the little wrinkles in the K-side pawn structure.
Nov-07-06  euripides: At the end Black can play Kf3 and queen his pawn but will then lose to the skewer on the long diagonal.

  Mateo: If you look carefully to this game, you will see that the beginning of Huebner's problems was 15...c5?. In every variation, until move 29, Black loses a pawn.
Dec-31-07  Rudy52: How does white win in the final position?
Black plays 61...Kf3 and the black pawn is on h2 when the white e-pawn queens. Black then takes on f2 and it's an elementary draw. What am I missing?
Dec-31-07  pacer: ...A)1.e8Q K:f2 2.Qh4 Kg1 3.Ke2! h1Q 4.Qf2# or 3.... Kg2 4.Qf2+! Kg3(h3)5.Qf1.. B)1e8Q K:f2 2.Qh4 Kg2 3.Ke2! h8Q 4.Qg4+ Kh2 5.Kf2!

  tpstar: <Rudy52> Welcome to the site. =)

White's King is close enough to threaten mate. After 61. Kd3 Kf3 62. e4 h5 (62 ... Kf4 63. f3! Kxf3 64. e5 etc.) 63. e5 h4 64. e6 h3 65. e7 h2 66 e8=Q Kxf2 White plays 67. Qe2+ Kg1 (67 ... Kg3 68. Qf1) 68. Ke3:

So that 68 ... h1=Q loses to 69. Qf2#. Black can cover f2 by underpromoting to a Knight (68 ... h1=N), only to be in Zugzwang after 69. Kf3.

Jan-04-08  Rudy52: Thank you guys. I tried to visualize the outcome but next time I'll set up my chess pieces first before calling out for help.

Jan-03-10  Jugendtraum: It appears that Seirawan did not run his commentary through a chess engine. Instead of his line <21 ... ♖b7? 22. ♘xf5 exf5 23.♖b3, when the far-flung ♗lack knight is in trouble>, a more convincing refutation is 21 ... ♖b7 22. ♘xf7+ ♖xf7 23. ♖c8+ ♖f8 24. ♖xf8#.
