Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-08-08  lonchaney: Very, very nice! The Anderssen - Morphy's touch in this one.
Jan-04-09  KingG: Yes, brilliant Queen sacrifice.
Feb-12-09  arsen387: why isn't this Q sac more famous? it's outstanding!!
Feb-24-09  KingG: <arsen387> There are many brilliant games that go unrecognized because they weren't played by the likes of Fischer or Kasparov. You can bet that if this had been played by one of them there would be at least 10 pages of kibitzing on what a fantastic game this is.
Aug-29-09  KingG: This should be Game of the Day at some point, although someone else will have to come up with the pun.
Nov-08-09  MrMelad: Cool queen sac! A test pun is "courageously divorced".
Nov-08-09  Steven87: Amazing queen sac.
Nov-08-09  computer chess guy: The Queen sac is flashier, but the simple 14. ♔h1 also gives White a winning position. After ...0-0 15.f5 Bxd5 16.Bxd5 Nc7 17.Bxa8 White has won an exchange and has strong threats against the castled King. Alternatives are even worse for Black.
Jun-27-11  meppi: 7. e4 is also really nice, a good idea to give away pawn to allow bishop to support centralized night. Similar positions can probably be found in other games where an e4 or d4 gambit is good also
Sep-18-15  mikealando: Wow!!
Dec-30-17  fispok: Nikky Kreuger maybe? The queen for three pieces is nice, but the rook sac after for tempo on the king is the real jewel.
Dec-30-17  bachiller: Kuz net's off.
