Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-30-05  PIGLET: This is the famous Pawn Diamond game which appeared in Players Chess News.

It's not often that the Pawn Diamond appears on the board. It's worth at least two pieces.

Mr. Wolff was quite late to the game which added to his woes.

  nezhmet: After move 34 for Black we have the pawn diamond. Does anyone have a structure-search facility to go through the database and see how many other games achieved a pawn diamond?
Feb-04-07  IMDONE4: Nice smash of P. Wolff
Oct-27-15  charliehertan: My research has uncovered a number of diamonds and they are quite strong. Though we were good friends in youth I never quite appreciated Mark's intrepid style which reminds me a bit of Jan Timman. He's not your cookie-cutter technical IM.
