Tabula Rasa: yes LMAJ you are paranoid.

Tabula Rasa: 55...Kf5! A triangulation move. The term "King triangulation" refers to the King making a "triangular" run around its location in order to arrive again at its starting point , but in a position a move behind its opponent. The purpose of triangulation is to give the move to ...

Tabula Rasa: 46.Kh6!! With a beautiful mating net to follow. From the annotation... 46...f6 47.Nf7+ Kg8 48.Kg6 a2 49.h6 mating shortly, or 46...Kg8 47.Nd7! f6 48.Kg6 a2 49.Nh6+ Kh8 50.Nxf6+ a1=Q 51.Nf7#

Tabula Rasa: 39...Kf8!! If White then continues with 40.Bxf7 Re4! and Black's d-pawn cannot be stopped. If Black had played 39...d2 40.Bxf7+ Kf8 White ends with a bishop and three pawns, while Black has a rook and 2 pawns. By playing 39...Kf8! it prevents the check by the bishop and thus ...
   May-28-05 Timman vs Ljubojevic, 1978
Tabula Rasa: 40.Ke7!! Though a pawn down, White counted on the imminent capture of Black's d-pawn to give him chances at a draw. Black can stop all of White's hopes with 40.Ke7! The obvious 41.Rxd7+ leaves White's King helpless after 41...Ke6! The threat is 42...Bc1+ and e.g., 42.Rd1 leads ...
   May-28-05 J Mieses vs Alekhine, 1914 (replies)
Tabula Rasa: 35...Kh7!! Even though material was even, Black's connected passed pawns offered promise of success. 35...b5 leaves the rook unprotected and White can reply with 36.Nf7! A surprising King move puts an end to all of White's hopes. 35...Kh7!! Black now simply threatens to push ...
   May-28-05 Tarjan vs L Christiansen, 1978
Tabula Rasa: 28.Kc3! White had a siginificant advantage here, based on his more active pieces, his passed a-pawn, and Black's weak d-pawn. Black was threatening 28...Nd3+. A King move was definitely White's best remedy. 28.Kc3! is more accurate than 28.Kc2, as it prevents Black's rook from ...
   May-28-05 Smyslov vs Korchnoi, 1952 (replies)
Tabula Rasa: 48...Ke7!! Black's rook cannot help it's pawns advance and also stop White's a-pawn (e.g. 48...e2 49.Re8 f3 50. a6 Rf1 51. a7 Ra1 52. Kxf3 and White draws.) Black needs to keep his rook there and use his King to stop the a-pawn. But the King to too far away for this. However ...
   May-28-05 Bisguier vs Tarjan, 1975 (replies)
Tabula Rasa: 47...Kf6! 48...Ke5!! Black's king wasnt able to get to the queenside to stop the a-pawn, also sacrificing the e-pawn with an early ...e3+ doesnt offer any prospects either. But there is a way for Black's king to accomplish his goal... 47...Kf6+ 48.a5 Ke5!! if white now ...
   May-28-05 Botvinnik vs Bronstein, 1951 (replies)
Tabula Rasa: 30...Kh8!! Moving the King - sneaky way of preventing a threat. Blacks forward double d-pawn seems destined to be lost. Because if 30...Nxa3 white can achieve approximate equality with 31.Nxd5 Nxd5 32.Bxd5+ Bxd5 33.Ne7+! Kf7 34. Nxd5. White is now threatening 35.Ra1 35.Nb6 ...
