Thanks Zibbit. Good defence in a tricky situation and a great video. I particularly enjoyed your 'on the fly' analysis of part of the endgame. Please post more of your encounters with top players.

Cheers,
Graham

In the "on the fly" analysis that Graham mentioned I think I had this positon.

And went Nd1 which of course holds the draw. But 57.Nxe4 is also interesting as 57...Bxe4 is stalemate!!

Zibb, I like offering the Draw on the first move... :) kidding. I know what you mean. very instructive last part of the game. This line is a bit tricky.. I have encountered it online a bit and once in a tournament.

:D Well played!! Not offering his hand!! Poor sportsmanship. If a lower played either beats or draws with me I'm the first to offer mine because I have not played the better chess. Great result and a pity you didn't beat him. Nice visd can we see more?

fascinating endgame tricks.
thanks for making this video.

I had heard of Landa b/c he once played the Smith Morra gambit against Kasparov.
and DREW!

talk about brass balls.

Yo Zibbit,

Just before the video ends is the position-

Image

It's interesting, having forfeited the f2 square it doesn't matter whether it is White or Black to move- White's completely lost in Zugzwang I think.

I see how it is frustrating when you're treated in a condescending way, especially because you come across as such a gentleman in your videos. More than your chess talent, it's the way you handle yourself where you've gained my respect.

I want to point out though that at least from an amateur perspective, his position in the ending looked better and the fact you made a draw seems like an act of witchcraft more than anything else (to steal a word or two from a famous quote on Fischer). Your endgame play was very, very, impressive.

Thanks very much for your kind words. Also definately one of my most interesting endgames I have encountered OTB.
