Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-31-15  Vermit: I am surprised no-one has commented on this game yet. A fine victory by a British underdog.32...c4 was a misguided attempt at counterplay.
Dec-31-15  Petrosianic: I'm surprised you're surprised. Thomas isn't really such a big name that you'd automatically expect all his wins to be commented on.

  MissScarlett: It's more a case of Flohr not being such a big name that all his losses are automatically commented upon.

  GrahamClayton: Interesting handling of the opening by Thomas with 6. ♘c3, instead of the usual c3 & d4 pawn advance.

  fredthebear: Not your ordinary game. The Black knight spends ten ply on the opposing back rank and White sacrifices a pair of queens. I can see why Reuben Fine enjoyed it.
