Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-17-05  InspiredByMorphy: 16. ...Ne5! Not much to say besides ... brilliant!
Jan-17-05  mdz: I agree that 16. ...Ne5! is brilliant, but unfortunately it did not give B any advantage at all: with a simple 25.Re8 c6 26.Rd1 (instead of 25.b4? in the game) W maintains full equality. One of many examples where beauty and result are not together :)
Sep-29-10  Ricosupercapo: The scoresheet contains a mistake. The move should be Nge7, not Nce7, which is illegal.
