Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-07-04  Helloween: White should have played 5.c4 or 5.Nf3 instead of trying to hold the pawn. 8...Rxb4! is the refutation of White's incorrect play, and White, instead of cutting his losses with 9.Qd2, chose to be mated.
Oct-26-04  Knight13: 8. c3? is little uncomfortable. The mating net would be 10. Qd1 Bxb4+ 11. Nc3 Bxc3# 1-0. This is like Michel vs NN.
