Domination

4/14/2010 – We have recently seen how hard it can be to hold the draw against a rook in a simplified position when you have only a bishop - there were the examples of McShane-Danin ("The fortress breaker") and Dragun-Leniart ("Zugzwang"). This position too is certainly not an easy one to evaluate. What do think is true here? A) White can only hold the draw with 73.Ke3. B) White can only hold the draw with 73.Kg3. C) No matter where the king goes, Black can never ever win. Larger diagram and analysis by Karsten Müller in ChessBase Magazine Online.
