Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-19-15  RKnight: Nobody commented on this game in 8 years, but I was puzzled why Black cannot queen the pawn and and win, since White cannot stop it. Then I saw it: Black queens but white mates with a pawn on the open board: 68...f7, 69 Kd6!, f1=Q, 70 e5#.
Jun-19-15  disasterion: <RKnight: Black queens but white mates with a pawn on the open board: 68...f7, 69 Kd6!, f1=Q, 70 e5#>

Presumably you mean 68...f2; but that line doesn't make sense: 70.e5 isn't even check, let alone mate.

Black can't queen his f pawn without losing it to the rook (eg 68... f2 69.Rxf6+ Ke3 70.e5 Ke2 71. e6 f1=Q 72.Rxf1 Kxf1 73.e7)

Feb-05-16  RKnight: My own comments make no sense to me now either. I must have set up the board incorrectly.

I think you just got the numbering wrong and was intending to say 65 ...f2 but you should've seen that before that anyway since why else would black sac the rook.
