Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-09-06  LivinFree: 45...Kg6 46 Re2 Kf7 (=).

Young Gazz won't accept the obvious
draw, and gets his bottom blistered.

Apr-20-06  HamasHamas: The above note is wrong, and after
45...Kg6? 46 d5! is a winning
breakthru, with Black's King going
the wrong way. Kholmov was always
a very strong player.
Aug-15-06  Steppenwolf: Amazing game. Kholmov is very impressive. I wonder how he would have fared in the West, instead of being mentally slaughtered by the stalinians.
Oct-09-06  ToTheDeath: Very nice game. To have a technically winning game against young Kaspy at move 20 is no small feat.
Jun-12-08  ToTheDeath: "One of the moments where I felt totally outclassed."

-Kasparov, My Story

Nov-20-18  MrJafari: I think While Kholmov was a good player, Kasparov wasn't in his usual mood!
