Sep-19-07  gambitfan: Endgames ♘+♙//♗

57 ♔f4 ... 58 ♘g4 ... 59 h5 ... 60 h6

This endgame is a theoretical win ??

Sep-19-07  Grumpi: No, after:

57.Kf4 Kd6

black play 58...Bxg4

and king goes to f8 - theoretical draw

Sep-19-07  gambitfan: Thank you <Grumpi> for your kind explanation...

The theoretical draw is due to the fact that the pawn is an h-pawn, right ?

Sep-21-13  jerseybob: Nice steady job by Horowitz in refusing to go down to Boleslavsky's Doomsday Defense, which the King's Indian was in those days. White snatches enough pawns so that even though he loses the exchange, he holds the draw.
