Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-01-09  Jonathan Adams: White was getting outplayed so sensibly decided he had to play aggressively. He picked up 2 pawns + the initiative for his piece which turned out to be sufficient to win.
Sep-22-15  cunctatorg: Vitaly Tseshkovsky conducted here a beautiful game; somehow I had underestimated him though I was aware that he was a really strong grandmaster.
Jun-06-16  Howard: According to British Chess Magazine, the move 30.Rc1 helped turn the tables. Polugaevsky had apparently just finished a combination which he saw would net him two pawns, but he should have looked a bit further than that.
Feb-23-18  Saniyat24: 47.Rh5+ is a cunning move by Tsheshkovsky...!

  ChessHigherCat: Almost all the games I play these days are with Arena, so I'm well acquainted with its style (but not well enough to beat it, unfortunately). Anyway, I'm pretty sure it would have played 14...e5 to get rid of the backward d6 pawn, break up white's pawn attack and block the diagonal for white's LSB. Wouldn't that be a good move?
