Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-13-06  Eatman: Some impressive tactic prowess by young Vachier-Lagrave
Jul-14-08  micartouse: This is an interesting and pretty phenomenon: White attacks on the kingside and Black attacks on the queenside, but in the endgame these roles are reversed.
Nov-06-10  Shams: A very instructive game by MVL. 23...Bf4! is alert, forcing white's knight to the back rank. 26...Kf8! is a nice consolidating move, asking white what he plans to do next-- black has already seen that if white snaps on a6 he comes into difficulties, as happened in the game.
