Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-09-08  Billy Ray Valentine: Nice endgame win for Tolya... this position looked very drawish at move 28.
Oct-11-08  Woody Wood Pusher: This was a great endgame win. Maybe the Trompowsky was the wrong choice, I expect Karpov studied it a bit after his match with Anand...
Jul-14-12  P3drotta: This game proves that you have to be extremely sharp at the last moves. Beim throws away a draw on the LAST move. instead of Nb3 (let the pawn be taken and march the knight to capture the pawn, rybka gives 0.00 indeed) played Nc2? which allows the pawn to promote..

  FSR: Beim probably had no time on his clock. Hard to imagine he would have missed this otherwise.
