Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-18-04  Sonofabishop84: Roughly 800 point elo difference and white wins! Although black could play on knowing that he is a far stronger player.
Aug-05-05  Knight13: Unbelievably extraordinary.
Apr-03-06  dakgootje: i think black castled too early and thus couldnt put up enough resistance against the white attack
Jun-12-06  trumbull0042: The crosstable for the tournament this game was played in:
Jun-12-06  Chess Classics: Wow, what a game! Firman must have been in shock after this loss.

  Bobsterman3000: The database shows Matt Fouts as having a high ELO of 2268:

Matthew Fouts

That would make this win a letter more understandable.

Dec-24-08  WhiteRook48: Wow I thought it was Nick DeFirmian instead. Black lost how many rating points again? probably 1200. Geez.
Jan-26-09  WhiteRook48: Black Pouted after this game
