I liked the Na6-c5 fork preventing the dxe5 capture and later defending the bishop. Also the sequence at 46... Bg2 to win the pawn was cool.

The opponent drags out a lost endgame hoping to score on time and then you drag it out even longer to guarantee a win. Awesome 8)

I'm glad you spent some time on e6 and Kalinitschew's game. d5 after Re1 makes White's rook and knight seem misplaced and White's bishop is bad until he re-routes it. Also d6 after Nc4 stays flexible. I've developed a bad habit of playing theory with little understanding of the ideas behind the moves.

The hardest part about B+N v K for me is getting the King in the corner. I need to work on my "wall" technique and I don't think I spend enough time preventing my opponent from reaching squares in general.

Thanks for posting about the psychology and opening choice of Anand v Topalov in the other thread. It was very interesting and really adds life to the games.

Seeing your team win the final game in the series had to be pretty cool! Your wiki is updated. It's very nice to have a new Zibbit video and also the PGN! Thanks again.

Remind me never to play you with any sort of delay! I have been in desperate situations before against some very high rated players (including two IMs) in 5-min games and sac'd to get into the bad side of the B&N and was able to draw since they were so short of time. I found it wonderful how you tormented the guy to get time on the clock, I think I would have egged it on longer, first apply the N to f6 and the bishop visits all the queenside squares, then apply the N to h6, the bishop repeats, then rinse and mate.

It's amazing that many remember first into the wrong corner, then to the correct corner but often forget the all important "W" knight maneuver.

Fun video, I liked your opening ideas as well, but I really loved the humor in the endgame.

I enjoyed and learned from this one, as always. Lots of great positional insights in this game, for example the very natural move f2-f4?! and the comments about the color complex weaknesses. Some neat "petite combinations" too.

Also, that piece sac for white is just sick.

ALso, this thread is not complete without a tribute to our friend Variance:

Oh Yeah! Forgot about that one - a true Classic!!! Great memory Katar! Even with no time delay Zibbit could not be denied!

That was a great video -- I especially enjoyed the "bishop dance" to gain time on the clock! I don't blame Zibbit's opponent for the bishop sac though. If you go to the databases, you can find a few guys rated around 2500 who couldn't manage to score the full point in the K+B+N vs. K endgame after 50 moves of futility -- and the number increases dramatically as you go down in rating... It's not an unreasonable try if you're totally lost like White was in this game.

How embarrasing for her! It's been three years (and a week but who's counting?) since I posted that, and as best as I can recall the "victims" were folks I had never heard of before.
