Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-08-17  ZonszeinP: Brilliant manoeuvres in the ending
Knight stronger than a bishop locked in the defence of d4
May-21-17  edubueno: LP se jugó la última carta y no pudo sacar ventajas, probablemente porque lo sorprendió 7...b6 en lugar de Cc6. En la jugada 24, se podría hacer tablas fáciles con 24 Cxd5! pero nada más.
Jun-17-17  Howard: Spassky's sealed move of 41...Ng7 was reportedly a surprise to Portisch, but it was a very good move on the former's part. The endgame was pretty much won at this point.
