Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-10-08  Knight13: White should've took that e4-knight long time ago. That light squared bishop didn't do anything except hang around and drink coffee all day anyway. Unless Staunton somehow knew that it would give him a bad bishop and increase the chance in losing, which I must disagree that it makes any difference since that was Black's strongest piece on the whole board.
Feb-05-12  Knight13: This game is rock solid on both sides. What more is there to say?
Sep-27-14  dernier thylacine: There is still to add: this is the first boring game of strong masters in the chess history! Absolutely without interest.
