Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-09-05  aw1988: A predecessor to the Frankenstein-Dracula, with a slightly different twist.
Mar-31-07  Interbond: In David Bronsteins book 200 open games he says this game is from USSR Team Championship 1959 in Moscow. Is this the same as Olympiad URS 1959? In I can't find there was a Chess Olymiad in Moscow 1959, but perhaps the soviets called their Team Championships for Olympiads?.
Feb-25-09  Sem: White's opening treatment reminds me of Znosko Borovsky's book: 'How not to play chess'.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: That Black Rook on a1 sure looks like it should be a White one, doesn't it?
Jul-28-09  Sem: <An Englishman> Mmm, yes... I would be tempted to scare Black with Rae1. I remember having read somewhere (a column by Hans Ree?) that a mistake like this actually took place, I believe in the 1980s. And by a very strong player at that.
