Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-26-02  knight: White used his center pawn majority efficiently and created a protected passed pawn. while at the same time he blocked black's queenside pawn majority.
Sep-14-18  RookFile: White had a crushing position after 18 moves or so. Central pawn majority and weak dark squares around black's king. Yet for some reason the pawn power believer doesn't play 20. f4 - the position is practically screaming for this move. The game probably would have been over in about 10 moves if Kmoch had played this way.
Sep-14-18  ACMEKINGKRUSHER: Howdy,

At 52. ...Kf6 Doesn't KMOCH WIN if he simply "PUSHES" the PAWN forward!? Looks to me like he has MANY Ways to WIN!!

  Castleinthesky: Here is my favorite Znosko-Borovsky ("ZB") story. ZB one time told Capablanca that he was composing a book of analysis based upon Capablanca's worst games. Capablanca replied that he wanted to write a book about ZB's best games, but couldn't find any.

Sep-14-18  Strelets: I'm with <Rookfile>. Black gets into a passive position, trades off a fianchettoed dark-squared bishop and gives up the a-file for free, and then drops a tempo with 29...Rc7?
