Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-17-16  Amulet: A systematic play by black, I could feel that this is the way the great Capa, the `Chess Machine' used to play.
Jan-17-16  geeker: Yes, interesting how the veteran Dreev was content to exchange all the pieces and win the endgame.
Jan-17-16  siggemannen: 43...fxe4 is very interesting. Instead of automatical Kxe4 which gives white chances for blockade with Kg3 etc, black exchanges his strong connected passer for a single passer. Good tactic to know

  paavoh: @siggemannen: < white chances for blockade with Kg3...> Don't you think Black could have also won after 43.- Kxe4, and if White moved K to g3, Black would penetrate with Kd3?
Jan-18-16  siggemannen: <paavoh>, yes probably black can win that way too, but after Kd3 white can do Kf4 and perhaps manage to eat some pawns getting counterplay. The game continuation didnt leave any counterplay for white
Jan-19-16  Tartalacreme: One of these games where it is not easy to tell where white went wrong. I don't like 16.g5 (I prefer Nf5 or even Nxg6), but g5 cannot be the losing move.
Jan-19-16  siggemannen: According to the comp, Rh4 was bad due to f5
