Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-10-14  CountryGirl: An exceedingly forceful game from Dreev, he grabs the initiative early on in a Qc2 Slav and never lets it go. Dreev's bishop stays en prise on h5 for 16 moves(!), while he gains tempos on White's queen. I like how he nonchalantly castles long in the middle. Early castling may have helped White attain a less hectic game. He wasn't able to stem the onslaught, unfortunately. Even so, I hope it turns out to be useful experience for young Schmakel!

  HeMateMe: This is amazing (to me). It looks like Dreev has seen the combination at least 17 moves in length, from around move 11...B-h5, ending with the Bishop reaching safety on move 28, and then a pretty finish.
