Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-06-17  ozmikey: A nicely-played ending by Browne. White must have breathed a sigh of relief after 36...Bxe2 (the exchange isn't forced - 36...Rd7 37. e6 Rd6 38. e7 Bb5 holds for Black), but the way Browne makes headway out of his anchored bishop, active king and passed pawn is impressive. White could have put up more of a fight by 52. Kf3 though, I feel.

Perhaps, perhaps not: 52.Kf3 Bh4 is not so easy to meet, even with the reduced material, because White's forces are poorly coordinated.

Jan-06-17  ozmikey: <perfidious> You're quite right. I initially thought that White could reply with 53. f5 gxf5 54. Kf4, hitting both the pawns...and then I suddenly noticed the immediate mate! And just typing this I've noticed that of course Black doesn't even have to take on f5, because there's another mate by 53...Rg3+ 54. Kf4 (or 54. Kf2 Rb3+ and an eventual ...Rb2+ winning the rook, now that the possible defence of b1 is blocked off!) g5.

So I guess White would have to try and hold with something like 53. Bf7 instead - not very promising.
