Kibitzer's Corner
May-24-07  iccsumant: Hey, apparently I am the first one to view this game. Or is it so infamous?
May-24-07  mravikiran: Don't know... but you are surely the first to Kibitz this game! Congrats and well done!!
May-24-07  Mizerak: What a strange game...the white dark-squared bishop is entombed for the longest time. I like the way White sacrificed the exchange (in essence) to get the Qside pawns moving.
May-24-07  Jack Kerouac: Jack-The Fourth.
These are two of the great names in chess.

  kevin86: This game seemed to have a strange series of exchanges-all of which favored white. When white had three pawns on the q-side facing a rook-I knew black was doomed. In the end EITHER white pawn would have won as the a8 square matches the bishop and black's king is too far away to stop the h-pawn.

  Chessmensch: It seems that especially early in the game a lot of tempi are being used moving pieces back, forth and around. Am I missing something or were there opportunities to make better use of some of those moves?
May-24-07  nimzo knight: Is Bora Tot some way related to BoraT ....
May-24-07  ounos: It seems 30. ... Rfe8 was rather careless, as it allows 31. Rb3, and due to the double thread Black can't simply defend with Nd7. After the removal of Black's b pawn (in exchange for a rather useless White's e3 pawn), Black's queenside gets vulnerable.
May-24-07  mynameisrandy: <nimzo knight> yes, they are very friend of the family way, i am thinking
