Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-02-05  Averageguy: White loses tempi in the opening and pays the price.
Aug-02-05  paul dorion: Fine game
Mar-07-07  Ulhumbrus: According to Polugaevsky, Bronstein said that White had an extra pawn but Black had more space. Actually Black has more than that because White's development is hampered as well, hampered so badly in fact that Black has too much for the pawn.
Jan-20-08  Everett: A nice shot with 26.Bxe2...

26...Bxe2 27.Nxe2 Rxe2 28.Qd3
26...Rxe2 27.Nf3+ and Nxg5
