Kibitzer's Corner
May-13-05  Hidden Skillz: thats one active king.. kinda early in the game
Aug-20-15  jerseybob: The Dunst Opening features 1.Nc3 for WHITE. This is a Nimzovich Defense, but I've never seen it so brutally beaten as Keres does to Larsen here.
Aug-20-15  Everett: Not so brutal in my eyes. Looks to me White had some uncomfortable moments.
Aug-20-15  jerseybob: Uncomfortable is not the same as really being in trouble. I think Keres foresaw every problem black would throw his way and had an answer ready.
Aug-20-15  Everett: So you think Keres and Larsen would agree that Black was brutally beaten here. Ok.
