Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-26-08  Knight13: White's better in the final position. Sucks that MacDonnell had to take that draw.
Jun-10-10  Octal: I doubt he had the positional understanding about the strength of his d4.
Jun-10-10  Boomie: Looks like a draw to me. I don't see any plan for white. Notice it's black to move so white can't get his king anywhere.
Feb-04-12  Knight13: 18...Qe7 19. Qg3 Qe5 20. Qf3 d4 maybe?
Feb-04-12  Knight13: Nevermind. 18...Qe7 19. Qf4 Qe5 20. Qxe5 Rxe5 and White's fine. (19. Qg3 Qf6.)
