Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-21-09  just a kid: 26...Rxf7! is a great deflection.
Jul-22-09  Knight13: 12. Qa4, Rad1, etc. is better.
Sep-22-14  Big Pawn: 15.Nd2? It seems like this just blunders a pawn. Staunton regrets the format of this tournament because good players like Lowenthal were knocked out early, by players who are clearly inferior to him. Well, talk is cheap! Williams delivered in this game and the other game with Lowenthal.
