Kibitzer's Corner
May-24-04  Whitehat1963: Two legendary proponents of the opening of the day fight it out. What's the finish?
May-24-04  Swindler: White is two pawns up and the bishops are of the same colour, so I guess it's won with the right tecnique.
Jan-01-05  fizixgeek: Why not 29. Bxf6?
Is it, in such situations, better to leave the bishops on to avoid a draw?
Jan-01-05  aw1988: 29. Bxf6 is not a legal move.

<aw1988: 29. Bxf6 is not a legal move.>

My guess is that <fixixgeek> meant to type "19. Bxf6", which is indeed a perfectly legal move, unlike "29. Bxf6".
