Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-13-14  Sihlous: White decides it's never too soon to bring your king up for the ending...Great tactics by Kamsky...Would have been great to see him convert that.
Apr-13-14  mrbasso: A calculation error. The pawn ending is a draw despite of the white King in the corner. Kamsky must have thought it is won for him.

  kbob: This is game of the week by Joel Benjamin on 4/25/14. The win for Kamsky is 59. ... Nd7! with both sides intending to sac a knight to stop a pawn. White lacks time for 60. Kxb4 and so must begin his race with 60. kb5. It is then crucial for black to run his e pawn. Both sides queen in 8 moves (the black knight having expired on b8 and the white knight forced to sac on e3) but black can then force the trade of queens with good king placement to access the remaining b pawns. If black runs the g pawn instead he wastes two tempi and can actually lose the pawn ending.
