Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-03-05  notyetagm: Nigel seems to think that the passed a-pawn is as lethal as a lollipop, what with his b2-bishop, c2-king, and d1-knight. Nimzowitsch said that <"the passed pawn is a criminal that must be kept under lock and key">. This is what happens when you don't: it queens and you lose.
Sep-09-07  tal lover: its amazing see Gary in his best years, almost all games he wins in 1989 and 90 he sacrifices something to get attack, in this game he sacrifice a piece to get a passed pawn, Gary have an unique sense of position, while weaker players focus on material, Gary focus on the position in the board. A true genius
Mar-03-11  Wyatt Gwyon: sick piece sac.
