Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-07-05  RookFile: I think it's kind of humorous how
the queens get traded, and St. Amant
allows Staunton to take a6 pawn....
knowing that the bishop can go to
a4 and it's a draw anyway.
Mar-07-08  Knight13: <...and St. Amant

He could have after 39...Be4 but I bet not many people would see White's Kf2 starts a journey toward b6.
Feb-06-12  Knight13: 27. Be5 is a good try if White is going for a blood thirsty win. It would test White's endgame techinique here to the limit.
May-10-12  AVRO38: This is a very sophisticated positional game. It's even more impressive when you consider that it was played during Christmas 1843 at the time of Ebenezer Scrooge and Tiny Tim!
