Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-17-12  Oceanlake: Think long before pushing the f pawn, longer if bishop or queen is on the diagonal.
Jun-17-12  JohnTal: A great slugfest - punch & duck. I'd rename this game "Woolly Bully".
Jun-17-12  ajile: I thought 16..a5 might be better. Of course Black has to always calculate tricks where White sacs a piece on c5.

  offramp: Both sides attack powerfully. There has to be a win for black somewhere.
Jun-17-12  The Big Lebowski: Great creative chess for 1889!

  Honza Cervenka: After 18...Rxf4, which was a blunder or perhaps too optimistic sac of piece, white was firmly in control of the course of events despite of black's dangerously looking attack.
Jun-17-12  psmith: 17...Nf4 looks better, leading to complications.
Jun-17-12  scormus: Greatly entertainting "no-holds-barred" game. B surely should be completely lost after 18 ... Rf4 and 19 ... Bxh3 but he still gets in some good shots.
Jun-17-12  LoveThatJoker: GG


Jun-18-12  weisyschwarz: Excellent pun!

  Benzol: Woolly Thinking might have been the pun I'd have chosen.
