Kibitzer's Corner
May-18-05  soberknight: The not-so-immortal game. 8 Ng5 was too optimistic; maybe try 8 Re1 or Bg5. Kieseritzky shows how on a board full of pawns, a three-pawn advantage offsets a bishop.
Feb-07-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: <sober> Yep, just too many pawns...
Dec-19-06  who: "The not-so-immortal game" I like that. They should make this the game of the day sometime.
Jul-19-07  benba57: Or the "Mutable Game."
Oct-19-07  nimh: Rybka 2.4 mp, AMD X2 2.01GHz, 10 min per move, threshold 0.33.

Mar-22-08  mistreaver: I nice case of 3 pawns winning against piece in endgame
May-02-09  WhiteRook48: the pawns just overthrew the bishop here
Aug-29-10  sevenseaman: Non-glamorous but a powerful down to earth game from Black. He is unthreatened throughout.
Aug-29-12  DanielBryant: This one isn't fit for human consumption.
Jan-01-13  chesssalamander: Great game by Kieseritsky here. I love 10. Bxe5, but of course, it isn't exactly a true sac: the bishop is trapped anyway. I wouldn't have put it on d6 in the first place, in front of the center pawn. I love how Kieseritsky trades down quite happily, even though he is a piece down, knowing his three extra pawns will win the day.
