Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-12-05  Runemaster: There are many nice points in this game - some kibitzers have mentioned some of them on the Rossolimo page. 9.Nc4 set up tactical possibilities with the knight fork on d6, and Black was caught with his king in the centre. Rossolimo cleaned up in fine style.
Aug-13-05  SEMENELIN: O'kelly had some bad opening and exchanges in the opening look at 4. 0-0 Bg7. If he didn't use Bg7 he could have probably had the bishop at Bf4 and the knight would not be able to fork at d6 =)

Sep-14-10  darkvader: What's wrong with 18. Qe6 Kd8 19. Rd1...
Feb-28-12  shivasuri4: <darkvader>, your suggestion appears to be the fastest win alright.
Aug-23-14  hscer: 2... Nc6?, allowing 3. Bb5!, was the losing move; 2... a6 would have at least drawn.
