Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-30-04  fred lennox: This positional masterpiece is historic. It is said to be the first recorded game where the bishop pair evolves a semi-closed position to it's favor, by pushing the pawns to doom the knights to passive play and increase the bishops mobiltiy.
Sep-22-08  ToTheDeath: According to Reti and others it's a landmark game in positional chess. I agree.
Mar-07-09  blacksburg: wow, nice game.
