Sep-26-07  lopium: I don't understand why 81...Kh7.
Sep-27-07  gnixon: I think black was guarding f8. With Kd5 supporting Bc5, black's bishop can no longer protect that square.
Sep-29-07  Madman99X: 59 ... h5 seems like an inaccuracy to me. If black makes white force the pawn action, can't he end up in a drawn position with the passed pawn on the h-file?
Oct-02-07  InspiredByMorphy: 22. ...Ne7? is quite the odd move. Why does black give up a pawn with no compensation?

  Honza Cervenka: <22. ...Ne7? is quite the odd move. Why does black give up a pawn with no compensation?> Well, what would you suggest to play instead of that. Black has quite cramped position and this at least liberates black's play a bit.
Oct-03-07  InspiredByMorphy: <Honza> Would 22. ...Bc7 with 23. ...Red8 in mind be better?
Oct-29-07  spirit: somewhat rare and interesting ending

  ajk68: Move 107 for white seems a bit odd.
There are certainly some stalemate possibilities, but it seems white is o.k. after 107. Bf6+ Kh7 108. g6+!

Am I missing something?
Why not play for the immediate simplification?

Sep-13-11  dumbgai: <ajk68> 107. Bf6+ Kf8 and white has to move one of the bishops again anyways to avoid stalemate.
