Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-18-04  chesscookie: The irony---Abe uses his bishops to startling effect and with the deadly precision of fischer's famed use of bishops.

A true classic , IMO

Aug-28-04  wall: Instead of 50...Rb8, maybe 50...Rh8 can draw. Instead of 52.Bf4+, why not just 52.Bxg8. The game ended after 53.Bf7+ since 53...Rg6 54.hxg4 is mate. Black could have also played 53.Bxg8 and 54.hxg4 mate or 54.Bf7 mate.
Aug-28-04  clocked: 50...Rh8 51.h4 and there is no hope for a draw. 52.Bf4+ is forced mate, why waste time taking the rook?
Nov-28-05  thunderbird: on the 2nd last move he cuold have moved his rook to g5....then he wuoldnt be in check-mate....
Mar-17-06  AlexanderMorphy: this turner has a 2+ 0-=1 against fischer
Mar-17-06  RookFile: Turner was a strong player. Of course, this is before Fischer made his quantum leap in chess strength (1800 to 2500+ in 1 year) to become US Champion.
