Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-23-04  Jesuitic Calvinist: A very good example of Marshall's style, particularly his love of open files.

At the end, white is completely paralysed.

Jul-23-04  suenteus po 147: Actually, he wishes he were paralyzed. The compulsion to move is both a blessing and a curse. Very instructive zugzwang ending.
Oct-05-04  chesscookie: beautiful ending
Oct-09-04  aw1988: This is the bloody harsh definition of zugzwang... poor Bernstein!
