Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-02-05  OneArmedScissor: Awesome game by Adams.
Dec-04-07  TheaN: Great ending. The Knight jump from Nf5 to Nh5 is neat: Flear is pretty helpless against the attack starting with gxf4; although saccing a pawn is not wise in that position.

28.e6 forces the Queen away and guards f7. Qd6 is really a mistake, Qd8 I find hard to refute (with the idea of Qf6 instead of f8).

29.Nf5, it starts. Attacks the Queen and g7 with checkmate, Qf8 forced. 30.Nh6+ Kh8, f8 is gone to flee to. 31.Nf7+ Kg8, where Qxf7 is helpless. 32.Ng5! with Qh7#. Qd6 is met by 33.Qh7+ Kf8 34.Qh8+ Ke7 35.Qxg7+ Kd8 36.Nf7+ 1-0.

Sep-05-12  Castleinthesky: A Possible Game of the day. Very elegant play by Adams.
Sep-05-12  andreagiananti: Couldn’t black win a pawn with 14…Bxf3 15.Qxf3 Nxe5…?
Aug-28-18  tigreton: This would be very dangerous because it would open the e-file, and White could prevent Black's castling, with moves such as 16. Qh5 or 16. Qg3 followed by Nf5 or Ng4.
