Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-19-09  ROO.BOOKAROO: Raymond Keene gave an insightful commentary in his latest challenge for March 20, 2009 (London Times, March 19, 2009)
Aug-16-11  kitbitzer31: Why not 34.Ne3 instead? Isn't that more forcing? Whereas on 34.Nb6, Black can continue 34..axb6 35.Rxc8+ Kh7 36. axb6 which 'just leaves White the exchange up' On the other hand, after 34.Ne3, Black doesn't have this opportunity..
Aug-16-11  kitbitzer31: Oh it's ok... I just saw it.. 34.Ne3 allows 34...Qd8! therefore, White must attack the Black's Rook twice.
