Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-16-19  PhilFeeley: 91 moves of pure suffering.
Feb-16-19  bezofu: Suffering? I wouldn't say so. Black was fine until 61...Nf7, when he walked into a two-move tactic that allowed White to unleash his completely useless, light-squared Bishop.

Had he played 61...Nb7 or 61...Ke7, White's last remaining plan would've been to play 62. Bh5 Bxh5 63. Kxh5 and eventually gxf6, to create a target on f6.

But if Black puts his King on f7, White King can never enter the position and there's no zugzwang because Nd8-b7-d8 can be played forever. Putting the Bishop on h4 and bringing the Knight around to g4 doesn't help either - as soon as Na5 moves away, Black abandons the b6-pawn and goes Na8-c7-e8, protecting f6 (and g7 too).
