Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-18-03  ughaibu: More aggresive play, extracting all the position has to offer.
Jan-11-04  ughaibu: Another Ruy Lopez
Jan-11-04  euripides: I like the tour of the kamikaze rook.
Jan-11-04  Catfriend: <euripides> Nothing to reduce from this amasing game (I REALLY liked it!)but the rook was sacrificed only once
Apr-02-05  Karpova: 9....ne7? a mistake (9....rk8)
10.bg5? correct was 10.d4! to exploit black's oversight

18.a4? nb3 and d4 should have been played. the line opening just favors black.

25...h3! (26.gh rh3:!)

30....ra8 (31.ra8: qc1+)

37...c6!! absolutely great move! gains time for e2

40...d5!! rubinstein - master of attack

what a fantastic game!

Jul-18-07  Karpova: <Catfriend: <euripides> Nothing to reduce from this amasing game (I REALLY liked it!)but the rook was sacrificed only once> <euripides> was correct as the black rook's indeed a Kamikaze Rook! Another sacrifice according to Hans Kmoch: 33.Bd5 bxc3!! 34.Bxa8 c2! (35.Qxc2 Qe3 36.Rf1 Bf3+ 37.Rxf3 Qe1+ while 36.Qxc7+ doesn't lead to a perpetual so no hope for black).

23....g4 is a brave decision - attacking on the g-file and opening it though the black King's still there.

Feb-11-17  cwcarlson: 28.Ng4? was bad since Bg4 29.Qf2 Rh6! 30.Ra8 Rf6 was crushing. 28.Rf1= was better.
