Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-12-03  Rookpawn: White seems to have forgotten about his own passed h-pawn.
Sep-05-04  Knight13: I got nothing to say about this game.
Sep-05-04  Giancarlo: <knight13>
Must you then say smething even if you have nothing to say?????
Sep-05-04  iron maiden: <Giancarlo> Don't even bother asking; I think you're the only one here who doesn't have him on "ignore."
Sep-05-04  Giancarlo: I'm giving it one last try <Iron Maiden>, see The Kibitzer's Café
Sep-05-04  Knight13: <Gaincarlo> Last try? Sure. You can put me on your ignore list. It's your chioce. Not mine.
Dec-05-05  Chess Clasics: <Putting Knight13 on ignore list> Yeah, but his avatar is soooooo cute!
Oct-22-07  blazerdoodle: My avatar is better than your avatar.

Uh, anyone got anything to say about this game? This lowly patzer can alway use the help.

The next step is to learn from your own mistakes as well; the sixth and most common mistake... :D

Sep-01-11  DieHard: I think the game is interesting. Philidor's Bd6-Bc7 and d7-d6 are suggestive of ideas in the Closed Ruy.
Nov-15-11  AnalyzeThis: You're right, DieHard. Objectively, in this specific position, the Bd6 and Bc7 idea is too time consuming, but in general, it's an interesting strategic idea.
