Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-17-03  drukenknight: another one from the old days that goes on for a long time. 27...Re6 looks a little anti positional, perhaps 27...Nf4; his N never really seems to get back in the game after this.
Nov-17-03  ughaibu: How about 16.....Be6? I dont like the capture on a4.
Feb-13-04  Whitehat1963: Anderssen's longest in the database.
Jul-25-04  Gbness: Anderssen was really in trouble after 43 Rb8 Nxc6 44 Rxb3...
Aug-17-08  chocobonbon: <Alenrama> Thanks for your World Champion End Games collection. These kind of collections are a nice help-meet to us IMO.
Jan-31-12  Knight13: <How about 16.....Be6? I dont like the capture on a4.> You're right. 16...bxa4 leaves the two queenside pawns in shreads.
Mar-11-12  drukenknight: it looks like even stronger for white was: 24 Nd6 I get something like:

24. Nd6 Re6
25. Rc4 Qb2
26. Nb7 a4
27. Rb1 Qa2
28. Nc5 axb3
29. Ra1

Mar-11-12  thomastonk: <drukenknight: it looks like even stronger for white was: 24 Nd6> After 24.Nd6 Qxc2 25.Nxe8 Rxe8, White still has an advantage, but problems with his pawns.

25.Ncxe5! is winning a clear pawn, because Black cannot play 25.. Rxe5 in view of 26.Rc4!

Feb-23-14  tranquilsimplicity: It is very telling that had I had the White pieces I would have settled for a draw. Now this is a demonstration of high end Chess skill.#
