Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-25-12  LIFE Master AJ: Fine game, nice use of Zugzwang in the ending.
Mar-25-12  King Death: When I played this ending through it didn't make sense that Furman played 63...Be8 because this allows an easy win, but I found the game in another source that gives 63...Bc8 64.f5 Bd7 instead. This transposes to the position in the score above and no harm done.
Mar-25-12  SChesshevsky: This was a nice game. I'm thinking Black may have tried to get too tricky with 24...Ba3.

It looks like he's at least pretty close to equal after 24. g3 even with the isolated.

But after 25...bxc6 he loses all sorts of time getting his queen out and protecting those bad a & c pawns and looks worse off by 31...Be6.

Maybe after doubling up his rooks it would have been better liquidating them at 24...

Mar-25-12  galdur: <King Death>, Im reading The Greatest Ever Chess Endgames by Giddins which includes this game and it does give 63..Bc8.

  Penguincw: What a king walk! I'm never seen better use of the king in the endgame ever. Without the king, white is toast.

  GrahamClayton: 49. g4 is a great move, fixing the Black pawns on the black squares, and allowing the White King to infiltrate into the Black position.
