Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-20-05  percyblakeney: This might be the first meeting between a couple that later would get married.
Apr-23-09  Raisin Death Ray: True love is a many-splendored thing!
Apr-23-09  Raisin Death Ray: BTW, was Black so distracted with White's hotness that he forgot 3..Bf5 is called for in this line? Otherwise, you risk a cramped position.
Jun-22-09  pom nasayao: D Garces made his first favorable move which led him into the heart of the queen of chess. It'll be a good topic during a consequent romantic dinner.
May-28-10  ColonelCrockett: 3. ...g6 is perfectly playable but the real idea is a trade on f5 not a "strong" fianchetto.
May-28-10  ColonelCrockett: also I think maybe something like 12. ... cxd4 13.Bxd4 Nf5 is a way to at least equality.
Oct-19-16  Doniez: What is the meaning of the Knight sacrifice? Is it a total blunder or what?
Oct-19-16  rayoflight: Worth mentioning that years later Kosteniuk traded "Diego Garces" with "Pavel Tregubov".....which means she divorced Diego...The first marriage itself is questionable, if it was for love or for Diego Swiss nationality or what....considering age difference...anyhow let's analyze chess i/o personal life of players...hahah

  kevin86: the c-file domination by white led to a quick win! White is a rook ahead!
Oct-19-16  RookFile: I don't think 11... c5 was the way to go. Better to keep it closed with 11...Qd7. Black did something good by getting rid of that light squared bishop, now the trick is to leave the pawns on the light squares.
Oct-19-16  Robyn Hode: I'm still jealous.
