Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-22-06  Philidor: Nice game. At a first glimpse, one might think that 51.♔xg4 would be the natural move (that the ♘ standing on f2 or g3 would keep Black from h1=♕), but after 51...a4, White cannot prevent Black from queening, since here two Q-squares are one too many.
Jun-11-19  Straclonoor: Like in second round-robin game vs. Blackbern Chigorin vs Blackburne, 1898 Chigorin could won this game. Knight ending won for black.
