Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-23-04  Dillinger: An instructive game for fans of the B52! Fear the f pawn!
Mar-01-04  ceiliazul: Newbie question: Why did white not play 26. Nxe7, thereby winning the queen and rook outright? So the game was over by that time anyway, it would have been even *more* over!
Mar-01-04  CapAnson: According to Fritz 26. Nxe7 mates in 8 so it was just an oversight..
May-17-04  LIFE Master AJ: An incredible game ... and a nice sacrifice! (This should make the anthology books, not your run of the mill chess game!!)

  whiteshark: <23...Kf8??> lose immediately. But even after best <23...Qc5> it will be hard after <24.Be3!> as the threat of 25.Nxf5 let Black remain in difficulties.

Nov-14-12  mrbasso: well, fine but 20...gxf5??. Instead 20...Rd8 (against Nd5) followed by exf5 and white can resign.
