Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-10-09  YoungEd: White seems to get a pretty good position out of the Ponziani, but ruins it quickly. I think that 17. ♗xc7 was a real mistake; the pin on the c-file is a real problem for White. Maybe just 17. ♗g3 instead. Cute ending; White must give up ♕ for ♗ or be mated by ♘g3.
