Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-06-04  JFRAY: Nice pawn storm!
Jun-06-04  iron maiden: Here's a prime specimen for my Game Collection: Power to the Pawns!.
Mar-31-05  Accuracy: Excellent concept by a master with GM talent.
Mar-31-05  bwmate: Superb staff by Tate, i will give him a name, firemaster on the board.
Jun-21-05  underrated: I wonder if after the knight fork on 26 white thought he was winning...I bet he did, I would have.
Jun-27-05  fgh: <underrated>: I know I'am a narcissist (hahahahahaha), but I wouldn't have thought that white was winning. Black has a strong pawn mass on the queenside which can't be stopped, the d5 pawn is weak, and the white rook cannot penetrate the queenside thrue the e-file, which is guarded by black. Still, a beautiful conception by Tate.
Oct-23-08  thebribri8: Reminiscent of McDonnell vs La Bourdonnais, 1834.
Feb-01-09  gauer: The game above shows off a Phalanx of 4 consecutive Pawns lined up on the 6th, & F J Lee vs H Shoosmith, 1904 demonstrates the strength of the cascading avalanche on the 7th rank.
Dec-05-11  Mudphudder: That is a very patient and acutely played pawn advance. Very impressive endgame.
Dec-05-11  King Death: That's a killer pawn wall in the final position.
Jan-19-13  Que1: Great end game established by sharp opening - I am a fan of Tate!

  Garech: Great game from Emory. RIP


Oct-19-15  Mating Net: Wow, look at all those pawns. Two connected pawns on the sixth win against a Rook, I can't recall seeing 4.
