Aug-04-04  sneaky pete: <There is no kibitzing for this page, yet.> That's what you think,
Aug-28-04  Whitehat1963: Ouch!
Nov-15-04  Saruman: Very pretty pattern! If 9.Qd2 Nd3+! he has to surrender his queen or get mated. The Nb4+Bc2 combo is exetremly dangerous when white plays Ne2.
Jan-21-05  GreenDayGuy: What was the point of 8.f3? To me, 8.Qa4+ looks a lot better.
Jun-16-05  DanRoss53: This is a copy of Zakar vs Szabo, 1933 ... does anybody know if there's a way to report this to so they can take one down, or do they want both?
Jul-23-05  tonsillolith: Maybe Zakar just isnt a quick learner.
Jul-23-05  samvega: <DanRoss53> Under the beige kibitzing box, there is a link "Spot an error? Please suggest your correction ...." Note that cg requests that you try to determine which of the two duplicates is correct, because they are rarely exact dups.
Oct-13-11  asianwarrior: Cute combination.
Jan-21-17  LRamos: Interesting move by Szabo. Bf5 aiming to c2, this game shows what might happen when a piece is on wing place like the knight at e2.
Jan-21-17  LRamos: The pawn on f3 is a big mistake. And blacks eight move is very good, getting the queen, in this case Nc2 would be a mistake for black, I think it was very instructive for me.
