Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-30-16  cunctatorg: Here comes the Bronstein-Larsen variation of the Caro-Kann, played a few times with enormous success and striking results by Aron Nimzowitsch when neither David nor Bent were born!...

I'd like to add that though these Nimzowitsch's games were already well known, the World Champion Emmanuel Lasker failed to handle convincingly the white part of such a game at the 1914 Sain Petersburg super-tournament and he had to defend successfully a lost position!...

Oct-30-16  Smothered Mate: According to the Lomonosov tablebases:

After ​ 42. fxg5 , ​ the 50-move rule affects ​
neither optimality nor unique-optimality.

The position just after ​ 42. fxg5 ​ is a draw.

43. ... Bf6 ​ (played) was the only drawing move (for black).

47. Kc1 loses; Ke1 was the only drawing move.

Black kept the win the whole way after that.

Oct-10-18  Resignation Trap: Position after 19...Nc5:

White should try the disruptive 20. d6! keeping some advantage.
