Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-28-04  Whitehat1963: I realize the knight is gone, but is there absolutely no hope for white? What do the chess engines say? What does Crafty say?
Sep-28-04  acirce: I think <crafty> would feel insulted if he had to work on this position.
Sep-28-04  Karpova: that's true. white couldn't defend this position against 90% of all patzers so why should he have went on playing it against alekhine?
Apr-01-08  Knight13: 12. Bxc5 is forced, since Black has the ...f5 ...f4 (with Nxc5 Nxe3) idea if white goes O-O.
Mar-15-11  Marmot PFL: Possibly a draw if 27 Nd4, although Taylor says black is better with 27...Rc5 and f5-f4
Apr-01-15  Cainechess: Nice unilateral fork! No chance for white.
