Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-10-02  bishop: A routine Rook sacrifice for Morphy. 15...Qxe6 is a mistake, If instead ...fxe6 I cannot find anything more than perpetual check.
Dec-08-03  fred lennox: 15...fxe6, fxg7+...Kxg7, N3f5+...exf5, Nxf5+
Apr-21-06  jackmandoo: Whenever you lose to a kingside attack with a knight on a some corner square like that it's time to make some hot coco, curl up on the couch under a lamp and read out loud one of your favorite "Home And Garden" issues because MAN, that always makes me feel good. Ya know?

Aug-17-06  rookattack: I think 13...gxf6 would have been better.
Dec-23-07  nimh: Rybka 2.3.1 mp, AMD X2 2.01GHz, 10 min per move, threshold 0.33.
