Jan-22-11  Eyal: A video of a very detailed analysis of this game by Navara in http://www.chessvibes.com/reports/r...

It's very nice how in the end the black king manages to advanace toward the centre due to a series of zugzwangs - the white king can't move and the white rook has to stay on the 3rd rank, otherwise Black wins with ...Rb3 & Rxg3. As Navara notes, 53...Kd7! is necessary, since 53...Kd6? allows 54.Ra5! cutting off the black king, and now 54...Rb3 doesn't work because of 55.Ra6+ & 56.Rxg6.

  GrahamClayton: That was a pretty amazing analysis session by Navara. I don't think that I could talk off the top of my head without notes of a game I had just finished.

I did think he was going to knock over the demo board a couple of times though :-)
