Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-04-06  KingG: 18.b4! was a nice move, making Black's bishop and knight into bad pieces.
May-23-08  KingG: This is a nice game to study in conjunction with Steinitz vs Sellman, 1885, illustrating some of White's other possibilities in this setup.
Jun-30-14  SpiritedReposte: Nice way to swap queens at the end shattering any illusions of a draw.
May-24-20  VipinZamvar: One of classic Anand Games. Very instructive for playing White against the French Defence.
