Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-27-08  didrayer: 1-0?? Perhaps I'm blind, but after 35... Qe8+ think are white, and not black, who should resign (36 Kf1 or 36 Kd1 leads to mate with 36...Qe2+; if 36 Qe4 then 36 Qxf7. Only 36 Be5 but then after changes in e5, black result with one bishop up)
Mar-27-08  mistreaver: No you are not blind that is nice pointing out me as well can't see how can white defend

  Phony Benoni: Game score typo: 34.Qf7 was played, and leads to quick mate.

  perfidious: <kia0708> If the man went by this spelling-and I've never seen another used-then tradition and politeness call for us to use Yanofsky. He was, moreover, born in what is present-day Ukraine.

There's far too much revisionist rubbish at the hands of PC types in this world, all of whom are afraid of saying or doing anything which might cause the slightest offence to another. At this rate, the day will soon come when we're all quivering masses of jelly, fearful of drawing the next breath.
