Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-14-05  Granite: Great final position, that's a real squeeze!
Jan-15-05  Whitehat1963: Another beautiful KGA!
Mar-18-06  CitricAcid13: Great finish!
Oct-25-08  sleepyirv: Very artistic position at the end.

  Dionysius1: I like the strength of the attack despite/because of exchange of queens.
Premium Chessgames Member
  scutigera: Like watching a spider wrap up a fly.
Jun-20-17  Doniez: Nice miniature and impressive final position
Premium Chessgames Member
  An Englishman: Good Evening: Pillsbury once wrote that players should try and arrange their attack so that when the fire is out, it isn't out. Obviously, NN could have played much better defense, but it still impresses to see how the exchange of Queens did not slow down White's attack. And <scutigera> wins this week's Simile of the Week award.

  ajk68: 11...Ne5?? Terrible move. You have two developed pieces and you trade one off thereby opening the f-file so your opponent can double his rooks?

  ajk68: 16...Kd6?? Helpmate. Ke8 has more fight.

  offramp: Why doesn't the title appear above the game?
Jun-20-17  Everyone: <Everyone>'s impressed
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: This is a crappy game for many reasons. It is a 20 move game but Black manages to play about 50 really bad moves. And White plays about 30 bad moves. making this the longest 20 move game in history.

It is so bad that has REFUSED to give it a GoTD title; it has been withheld.

  kevin86: King chased and surrounded by white's pieces.
Jun-20-17  schnarre: ...Black's lack of aggression allowed White to simply waltz through to victory here (the numerous bad moves didn't help either).
Jun-20-17  ajile: Mr. NN sure has taken a beating over the decades for our entertainment.
Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: Yes, <ajile> but we must not overlook "NN"'s victories

...which while few, these games carry a certain amount of fire and effort
