Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-12-07  RookFile: Tell you what, this is a really good game. The entire game has a modern look to it, punch and counterpunch. If you showed this to a bunch of players, they might easily image a couple of masters of today playing something like this.
Feb-28-08  wolfmaster: This was the inaugural game for both Walker and Saint Amant's careers.

Mar-28-18  RookFile: That 2. f4 comes and goes. Naka played it:
