Kibitzer's Corner
Premium Chessgames Member
  fredthebear: White gets the job done in this K-B-N vs lone K ending. The mate can be forced in the corner the color of the bishop, in this case a white corner due to the light-squared bishop. The 50-move rule to claim a draw (no captures or pawn advances have occurred in the previous 50 turns by both colors) is applicable to this type of ending.

106.Bc8+ seems to be an error. Generally, the Knight leads and the bishop trails to prevent retreat. A better alternative was 106.Be4 Ka5 107.Nc4+ Ka4 108.Bc2# (This is not a typical mate in this ending, but the lone K chose such a demise.) If the lone K heads back the other direction 107...Ka6 108.Kc6 Ka7 109.Kc7 Ka6 110.Bc6 Ka7 111.Bb5 Ka8 112.Nd6 Ka7 113.Nc8+ Ka8 114.Bc6# is a possibility. Once the lone king is forced to the outer edge of the board, the stronger king tries to maintain the opposition to prevent the lone king from leaving the outer edge. Then the minor pieces prevent exit on either end. However, the minor pieces must not prevent the lone king from entering the mating corner of the color of the bishop.

Other move variations are possible.

  fredthebear: Note: In the actual game, had White moved the knight anywhere on move 111, the game would have ended in a stalemate (not in check, but no legal move available to the lone Black king).
