Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-03-04  fred lennox: In the Stonewall, it is often thought that White's attack is diminished when his light sq. bishop is exchanged. Also, the position is weak now that black has access to c4 and e4. To play cxd3 is often effective. It mantains control of e4, it makes the advance of black c pawn less biting, and it gives some prospects along the half-open c file for white.

A way not to handle the lost of the light sq bishop is here H W Trenchard vs Schlechter, 1898

Feb-07-06  dfelix: If white's bishop were on e5 in the final position then the queen sac would be a threat: Qxh7+ Kxh7 Rh4+ Kg8 Rh8+ Kf7 Rh7+ Kg8 Rg7+ Kh8 Rf7+! Kg8 Rxg6+ Kxf7 Rg7#. But Mattison looks pretty hosed anyhow.

  hesyrett: <dfelix> Mattison is totally hosed in the final position:  for example, 22...♕b5 23 ♖xg6+ hxg6 24 ♖xg6+ ♔f7 25 ♖g7+ ♔e8 26 ♕e7#.
Jan-12-11  izimbra: <17...Nc5> was a mistake, but it's hard to guess why it was played. <17...Bc5> is both obvious and good for black.
Jan-13-13  talsqueen: Great game, but why did he move his king to e2?
Jun-15-18  Kwesi: <talsqueen> Moving the king to e2 connects the rooks and allows the last move of the game 22.Rag1
