Kibitzer's Corner
May-24-06  Chicago Chess Man: This is such a beautiful attack. Adams gives up a piece for a strong initiative and makes Fabrego pay for his greed and failure to castle.
Feb-05-11  computer chess guy: Adams' attack was very difficult to meet. But Rybka 3 suggests returning some material with 20 .. Be4 21. fxe4 22. Rd8, with some advantage to Black.
Dec-12-16  EvanTheTerrible: Lots of fun from Adams.
