Dieter , as usual, prove the value of a knight against a weak bishop. And the last moves are only opera...
Oct-05-07  bachus: I believe 46..Ke5 instead of f2 is not accurate, because 47.Kd3 forces 47..Kf4 back... still winning for black , of course
Oct-05-07  Deceptor: Sometimes arbiter puts King on e5 when White resignes before Black's next move.
Oct-05-07  nuwanda: hi <bachus>, i dont believe 46...Ke5 has really been played, probably some kind of transmission error or something like that...

after 47.Kd3 Kf4 is not winning any more for black, because of the simple 48.Rxe2

46...f2 may be winning for black, i dont know, but certainly a lot of work to do with queen against rook and 2 pawns against 3 all on the same wing

i think it was 46...Ke3, which, as far as i can see, is an easy win for black

Oct-05-07  bachus: hi <nuwanda>, thanks for pointing this, i believe you're right, 47.Kd3 Kf4 48.Rxe2 is a draw which means 46..Ke5 was not played

What happened here was probably done in accordance with a convention frequently followed in international tournaments using auto-sensory boards with automated electronic display of the position. I am not entirely clear exactly how this convention works, but from what I do know, it seems very unsatisfactory. The essence of the convention is, after a decisive result, the winning King is placed on a center square (I am not sure if it is always e5 for the Black King) to indicate the result to the spectators. Doing so, of course, distorts the final position and sometimes causes confusion over the last move played in the game (as seems to have happened here; I suspect Nisipeanu played 46. ... ♔e3, after which his opponent resigned and placed the Black King on e5 per the above-described convention).
