Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-21-07  sneaky pete: The typical madmac counterattack .. h6 with .. g5 could have exploded in his face if white had retaliated with 8.dxe5 Nxe5 9.Nxe5 Bxe5 10.Bxf7+ Kxf7 11.Qd5+ Kf6 12.f4 .. (regains the sacrificed piece with advantage).

In the game continuation, after 15.gxf3 Bh3 16.Re1 h5 looks very promising for black.

Feb-23-08  wolfmaster: Even in 1834, Labby and Big Mac knew that opposite-color bishop endings are drawn.
Apr-14-09  WhiteRook48: 40 Bxc5+ makes me almost laugh, but maybe I'm just a weirdo

  Knight13: The sequence starting with 23. a4+ (ending on 30. h4) is amazing. White sees that Black has advantage in pawn structure and then pulls some combinations to neutralize Black's advantages, thus drawing the game.
