Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-02-07  patzerboy: What a terrific and entertaining fight!
Nov-02-07  shadboltbill: 41: ra6! What fun--if you're not on the receiving end .
Nov-02-07  shor: it's a great game, I do have a question though, is it wise to trade the white squared bishop in the french?
Nov-02-07  kellmano: Great game indeed. I always wonder how much the players had 'in hand' in games like this, i.e. How many of the momves that surprised me on a quick play through surprised them at the time.
Nov-02-07  newzild: Yeah, a real slugfest. White showed a lot of imagination. It's surprising black lasted as long as he did.
Nov-02-07  SomeoneElse: I liked 26. f6. White has a queen and bishop en prise, yet can still make this move. SomeoneElse wouldn't have seen it. Taking the queen looks bad for black. Does the line after 26...bxa3 go like this, 26. f6 bxa3 27. fxg7 Rg8 28. Nf6+ Kd8 29. Nxd5+ Kd7 30. Nf6+ Kc7?

  kevin86: A few cute nuances in this one: 41...♗xg7 42 ♘xg7+ followed by ♖xa8 as the rook defender,the bishop,has gone AWOL

Or earlier 23...bxa3 24 fxg7 and white threatens to get a new queen or regain the old one-and creating an unusual windmill effect: 24...♖g8 25 ♘f6+ ♔e7 (or d8) 26 ♘xd5+ followed by ♖xc6!

Nov-02-07  SomeoneElse: I must not have had enough caffeine earlier. My line beginning with move 26 actually starts at 23, as shown correctly by kevin86.

  Chessmensch: <SomeoneElse> You mean 23 f6.
Nov-02-07  zb2cr: I must be stupid. After 39. h4, what prevents Black from playing 39. ... Rxh4, with the threat of 40. ... Rh1+? 40. Nf3+, Bxf3; 41. Rc5+, Bd5; 42. Rg5+, Ke6 does not look at all lost for Black.

  fm avari viraf: A wonderful game with lots of creative ideas that make this game a very instructive as well as entertaining.
Nov-02-07  solstys: Were there ratings back in 1958?

  perfidious: A piquant game: it is not every day that one sees a French in which Black has the bishop pair facing two knights.
Feb-09-18  morfishine: The USCF started using ELO in 1960
