Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-09-03  angle605: Why does black play 11...h5 instead of moving the knight back to f6?

  Honza Cervenka: Is anything wrong with 11...h5? I guess that 12.hxg4 hxg4 13.Ne5 Qh4 14.f4 g3 is not the problem for black...;-)
Sep-12-03  angle605: Honza Cervenka: Thank you for responding to my question. I've been reading the various Kibitzer's and many people such as yourself have good chess knowledge. I think I've learned some things. Lately, I've been looking at the opening position of a Queen Ganbit going to Slav Defense. The position after move 4. Nc3 In the game above. White doesn't really have a threat here do he? The c4 pawn is up for grabs? why?
Dec-26-04  Whitehat1963: Another simul, but he beats Alekhine with black, no small achievement, even if it was about 8 or 9 years before Alekhine's prime. Who was this guy?
Feb-02-05  meloncio: <Whitehat1963> Valentin Marín y Llovet, a strong Catalonian player. In the chessgames database is listed wrongly (as usual for Latin players) for his second surname Llovet: Valentin Marin y Llovet .

As a member of the Spanish chess team, he participated in Chess Olympiads Paris 1924, London 1927 and Hamburg 1930. Take a look here:
