Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-17-04  Seraph88: This game is kinda weird...are they trying to develope pieces or are they wasting costly tempos...
Nov-17-04  sourcerer: ya! figures what was at stake
Nov-17-04  panigma: What's wrong with 45.Kd1?
Nov-17-04  tldr3: if 45.kd1 black plays Qd6 attacking the knight and king

  kevin86: Boo to the Londoners! Braveheart lives!!!
Nov-17-04  panigma: <tldr> if 45...Qd6, then 46.Bxd3
Nov-17-04  Catfriend: 45.♔d1 ♘:b2+ 46.♔c1 ♕g5+ with mate.
Nov-17-04  panigma: Ok! Better answer. Thank you.
Nov-17-04  tldr3: panigma your Bxd3 leads to mate in 2 45.Kd1 Qd6 46.Bxd3 Qxd3+ 47.Kc1 Qc2++
Nov-17-04  tldr3: but Catfriends answer is much better

  tpstar: aw1988 <needs help creating a clever pun for that Bronstein game before it can become GOTD...> :) Perhaps give the reference game, and maybe some witty folks might expedite your process.

Jan-09-06  sciacca khan: This was a correspondence game? Were both sides blindfolded?

  Honza Cervenka: I would say that the game was played quite well from both sides till 29.f4? which went astray.
Oct-03-08  Nikita Smirnov: At last a pun with one of my favourite bands THE CLASH!!!
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: Could it be said that Edinburgh was "London broiled"?

  Marmot PFL: How did they sent the moves back then, by pigeons?
Oct-03-08  cydmd: White lost the initiative on move 28.dxe5. I would play 28.Nxe4 although I don't think this move makes White better, it makes the game playable. Black pieces are very well positioned and the white Queen is away from the battle. But I agree with <Honza Cervenka> that 29.f4? is the decisive mistake.
Oct-03-08  Super Chess Man: This was not a very good game by all !
Oct-03-08  newzild: Nikita Smirnov: At last a pun with one of my favourite bands THE CLASH!!!

.....except that it isn't a pun.

Oct-03-08  newzild: This was quite a good game, I thought.

24...d5 was bold.
