Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-27-07  kellmano: It's quite amusing to play through this on the tablebases. Starts off as a theoretical win for black, but in 50 + moves!

He doesn't really make to much progress, the final position is mate in 26

Apr-21-09  WhiteRook48: I have never seen this kind of endgame before
Dec-20-09  ColonelFearguson: This kind of endgame was thought to be a draw and the "drawing" strategy was followed by Pinter in this game, but only in the 1990s, thanks to computers, people found out that it's winning for the side with 2 Bishops. Some similar endgames have been won from that time.

Feb-18-13  Everett: Well if there was anyone not so willing to play this out correctly, it would be Bronstein; maybe Janowski and Bogolubow as well.
Mar-31-16  QueensideCastler: It's mate in 79 after 59. Kxf4 according Lomonosov Tablebases.

  louispaulsen88888888: I had this endgame once. I had the 2 bishops. Neither of us had a clue. Comedy of errors. Finally won the Kt but later blew the win when I stalemated my opponent!
