Hiarcs-Jonny, WCCC 2015

Post by jdart » Mon Jul 06, 2015 2:49 am

This had an interesting endgame, with Hiarcs having two minors for a Rook - normally that is an advantage, but Hiarcs had one of its Knights badly tied down. Still, it looks like it could have drawn with best play. Stockfish 6 seems to think White should have played Be2 here instead of Nb5:

[D] 6r1/8/3pp3/2k1p3/2P1P1np/p1N1P3/P5P1/3N1B1K w - - 0 75
