   zenwabi has kibitzed 8 times to chessgames  
   Sep-23-18 Korchnoi vs M D Tseitlin, 1973
zenwabi: GM Gelfand thinks this is an amazing game by Tseitlin, citing it on p. 238 of Gelfand's POSITIONAL DECISION MAKING IN CHESS.
   Aug-18-18 Gelfand vs Wang Yue, 2010
zenwabi: GM Gelfand considers this one of his best games, and he has annotated it extensively in his fine book, POSITIONAL DECISION MAKING IN CHESS.
   Dec-14-17 R Wojtaszek vs Fressinet, 2011
zenwabi: This game is discussed by GM Mauricio Rios in his book CHESS STRUCTURES.
   Mar-04-11 A Pornariyasombat vs C S M Franco, 2010
zenwabi: On Move 31, this game has a nice example of the hook-and-ladder trick (deflection sacrifice) by black.
   Mar-03-11 Zhu Chen vs P Cramling, 2011
zenwabi: Ms. Cramling has been on the tourney circuit a long time, and her professional handling of the black pieces in this game testifies to that. For Nimzo fans, the move order she uses in the opening of this Classical Variation is intriguing.
   Mar-03-11 N Dzagnidze vs B Munguntuul, 2011 (replies)
zenwabi: If you like the KIA, you'll enjoy playing over this game, as it's unusual.
   Dec-29-10 V Timofeev vs Nezhmetdinov, 1969 (replies)
zenwabi: "Confusion is sufficient compensation for a sacrificed piece." --- I read that recently, but can't remember the source. The quote applies to this game.
   Nov-28-10 G Casey vs L Penny, 1974 (replies)
zenwabi: 23. ... Bh3+! is a nice tactical shot that wraps up the game.
