Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-27-08  sneaky pete: Carel van den Berg vs Jan Hein Donner, Veenendaal 1955, had (after the same first 11 moves) continued 11... Be7 12.e5 b4 13.exf6 bxc3 14.Nxe6 1-0. 11... b4 was of course not a prepared improvement. Donner, with his legendary self-conscious attitude towards the rest of the universe, had erased the earlier game from his memory.

  FSR: Well, you can hardly expect their second game in this line to be a marathon like the first one.
Sep-17-12  Olavi: Isn't this the game after which Donner said, yes it looked somehow familiar but I thought that was because your moves were of classic beauty.
Oct-23-12  newzild: 13. Bxa6 would make a great puzzle - maybe for a Thursday.

  Abdel Irada: Mighty obliging of Donner to play 11. ...b4, more or less forcing the winning knight sac that Van den Berg already had in mind.

Apr-12-14  sneaky pete: Black could have spoiled everyone's fun by playing 12... Qc5
